According to the research posted here, it isn't – and wouldn't be. The proof namely being the Chip and Pin technology being used in the U.K. currently, a way to prevent bank fraud. The PIN system is already common in most every country, so this could be something rolling out to your very own door soon. Criminals always adapt, the article states, and that no matter the hurdle, it will be bypassed. Digital security is increasingly prevelant in all forms of work, and with increased globalization comes an increased need to verify you're dealing with who and what you are think you are. Though it is probably true that fraud cannot be eliminated, the article doesn't give any insight as to what the researchers are doing to address the issues they bring up. The weakest link is always the human one. Secure humans?
