PROTECTING YOUR WEALTH FROM FRAUDULENT ATTACKS

Every business and individual is at risk. What can you do to stay safe online?


We live in a digital age where the increasing number of financial fraud attempts keep many of us awake at night. Fraudsters and cybercriminals are becoming more advanced and the technology they use, more sophisticated.

Our clients joined us over breakfast at The Soho Hotel to hear from the experts at Schillings about how to avoid becoming yet another national fraud statistic.

You can watch the video of the event below.

 

TOP TIPS TO PREVENT FRAUD:

1.    Passwords should be complex, using three random words changed regularly, especially when employees leave and extra care taken for bank and email accounts.

2.    Anti-virus software should be installed on all devices and software should be kept up to date as soon as the developers make updates available.

3.    Don’t open any attachments you were not expecting. 

4.    Keep confidential data out of sight.  Everyone has a smartphone camera today that can quickly capture private information in passing.

5.    Shred it.  

6.    Beware of phishing scams. Unlike common spam, a phishing e-mail is after personal details and disguised to look like a real email.  Key things to look out for include:
•    The senders email won’t look right; hover over the sender’s name to reveal the real email address
•    The grammar and English may be poor
•    They may want you to click on a link or open a file
•    They often create a false sense of urgency

7.    Delete any e-mails that are suspicious or call the sender directly.

8.    Don’t access your bank or personal information using Free Wi-Fi as this is not secure.
