Northern Bank joins ABA and banks across U.S. for #BanksNeverAskThat anti-phishing campaign

Press Release

Woburn, Massachusetts, October 3, 2022 – Northern Bank, a full-service community and business bank, today announced it joined the American Bankers Association and banks across the nation to promote an industry-wide campaign educating consumers about the persistent threat of phishing scams.

The FTC estimates that consumers lost $5.8 billion to phishing and other fraud in 2021, an increase of more than 70 percent compared to 2020. To combat phishing, the #BanksNeverAskThat campaign uses attention-grabbing humor and other engaging content to empower consumers to identify bogus bank communications asking for sensitive information like their passwords and social security numbers.

Northern Bank, along with more than 1,000 banks from across the U.S., kicks off this year’s updated campaign on October 3 to mark the beginning of National Cybersecurity Awareness Month. Throughout the month, Northern Bank will share cybersecurity education and fraud awareness information with its social media followers.

Be sure to follow Northern Bank on Facebook and LinkedIn throughout the month of October.
