Why it’s important to create a culture of crime awareness in your business.
As businesses work towards strengthening their IT defences, fraudsters are starting to focus more on compromising people rather than systems. All it takes is one staff member (or even the CEO) to click a link in a phishing email or miss the red flag in a payment request and your business could lose a lot of money or suffer reputational damage. Empowering your people to understand the tactics fraudsters use – as well as regularly reviewing your fraud defences – will give you the best chance of preventing financial crime.
