Richard Martin, business security consultant at Financial Fraud Action UK, spoke with Finextra about how banks and consumers can protect themselves in light of a 55% spike in online banking fraud in the UK.

He says consumer education and information are important, but he also cites improvements in OS security from the likes of Microsoft.
