Avoiding the Scam! Better Act Fast!

Fraudsters have a huge toolkit of tricks to pull from. Let's take a case of social engineering – also known as phishing. Hackers can take advantage of the fact that a company is engaged in a merger and/or acquisition, and can target employees who are responsible for personally identifiable information with emails that appeared to be from others within the organization. It happens all the time... especially when policies and procedures are not followed.

Avoiding the Scam! I’ve Got a Favor to Ask

Unless we're really careful - and follow our cyber security policies and procedures - emails can get us into real trouble (and lead to serious financial loss). Policies are in place to protect you... and the organization. When it comes to hacks and scams, following those procedures can mean the difference between catching a scam or losing thousands (if not millions) of dollars.

We all want to help our customers or vendors... but a fake email (or an unconfirmed phone call) can get the organization into some real trouble. It only takes one missed step in the process to cause lots of financial devastation. Cyber attacks are increasing each and every day. If your employees don't know how to spot a bad email - or more importantly - ignore organizational policies and procedures when it comes to security, chances are, you're going to get scammed.
