Credit Unions Unite! Meet Superheroes at Utah Convention

Marvel’s Avengers and DC’s Justice League may have inspired awe when we were kids, but as adults we need heroes who are more accessible and relatable. In a time where "darkness threatens to consume" and "money rules the day," Utah’s Credit Unions Association (UCUA) wants to take the time to recognize the unsung superheroes who live among us: credit union workers.

From Mobile Data Terminals to Smartphones: New Hotbed for Crime?

Mobile Data Terminal Old Mobile Data Terminal New

When I started in law enforcement at the Portland Police Bureau in 1978, the bureau was proud of two great advancements, a single computer station in each precinct that printed results on paper (no video screen, just a printer!). What’s even more amazing, Mobile Data Terminals (MDTs) – computerized devices used to communicate with central dispatch offices – became available in a few police cars.

NEW Infographic | What Do ATM Skimming Devices Look Like?

According to Secret Service agent Scott Sarafian, "technology is increasing, and it’s becoming somewhat easier to steal money electronically versus by a gun."

From mobile phones to personal computers to medical treatments, new and continually improving technologies are embedded into our lives. Unfortunately, sophisticated technology can also breed crime. ATM skimming, in particular, is becoming more prevalent with sophisticated devices, ranging from hidden cameras to disguised card readers, emerging every day. Jenny Durkan, U.S Attorney for the Western District of Washington and a strong advocate for cyberfraud prevention, says cybercrime is "costing our country billions of dollars."

Check out 3VR’s latest infographic, "What do ATM Skimming Devices look like?" to learn about the different methods used by ATM skimmers today. By becoming familiar with skimming devices, frontline bank employees can fight skimming, foil the ATM thieves’ attempts, and most importantly, protect their customers.

Working Smarter With a Smart Video Intelligence System

bridge toll booth

The tollbooth for the bridge was quickly approaching and I found myself frantically searching in my glove box for the electronic transponder that would allow me to pass without having to stop and pay. Where was it? Not in the top glove box. Not in the lower glove box either. I didn’t have time to stop and clean out my car, nor did I want to pull over to search for it. It would take too much time – time I needed to do other, more important things. If only I had a tool that would make it jump out at me, like a giant magnet to find the "needle in the haystack."
