CRA Cyber Security

Cyber-Savvy Seniors

Older adults are among those most vulnerable to online scams, financial abuse, and fraud. In accordance with our Senior Housing Crime Prevention Foundation’s mission of protecting seniors, we’ve put together flyers on timely topics with instructions for keeping private data safe, avoiding check fraud, phishing, and more.

We even personalize these documents for our partners so they can be distributed with your bank’s branding.
