Protecting your business
Some things to keep in mind when protecting your business from the impact of fraud and scams.
Fake emails
Genuine emails about online government or business services will not include links to sign in pages, or ask for your personal information, account details, PIN or passwords.
Suspicious links
If you are unsure if the email, call or SMS you have received is genuine, do not click any links or open any attachments, and contact the organisation using contact details that you’ve found yourself (e.g. using a search engine like Google).
Change of bank details
If you are unsure about a change to a supplier or employee’s bank account details, call them to confirm even if an explanation is provided by email.
Business security compromise
Make sure your business computers have up-to-date security software.
Keep staff informed
