Consumer access to traditional banking channels is being severely constrained. Shelter-in-place mandates are driving homebound consumers online in record numbers as they seek advice on how to adjust to rapidly changing financial situations. While two-thirds of consumers already turn to digital banking for balances and recent transactions, a protracted period of digital-only access will likely send them in search of deeper capabilities, including P2P payments, mobile check deposits, and real-time customer service responses through chat, video, and more. Javelin explores how top banks are responding, and provides recommendations on maximizing digital channel adoption and use.

COVID-19 has triggered an international response that is unprecedented in terms of how enterprises engage during a pandemic. Until recently, such an event was largely a fictional exercise of documenting what might occur and business continuity impacts. Unfortunately, cybercriminals are looking to profit from the current pandemic, with the potential of overloading security teams that were already operating at maximum capacity. In this impact note, Javelin looks at the risks, threats and opportunities related to a large work-from-home workforce and the need, more than ever, for organizations to focus on insider risk.
