How to protect your business from scams and fraud
It’s an unfortunate fact of life that business scams and fraud are on the rise in Australia. Scams and frauds can originate from anywhere, especially in the digital age we live in.
Here are our top 4 tips to protect your business.
Tip 1 – Have two-factor verification on all your online accounts
This is where you are sent a code via email or text to access online accounts. It can help to prevent unauthorised access.
Tip 2 – Use different passwords for different accounts
Many people use the same passwords for all their online accounts for convenience. Unfortunately, it’s convenient for hackers as well if they manage to get their hands on your password.
You can minimise your online risk if you have different passwords for different sites.
Tip 3 – Monitor your online accounts regularly
Always be on the lookout for suspicious activity or unauthorised access to your accounts.
Tip 4 – Keep your security software up to date
Make sure you regularly run scans on your system to detect any issues where your system may have been compromised by hackers and scammers.
The bottom line
Cybersecurity is a crucial issue for most businesses these days. Make sure you take appropriate steps to ensure that all your business information is as secure as possible.
