17 Jul How to Prevent Cyber Crime
Fraud affects 1 in 4 small businesses every year.
Protect you, your family and your business against Cyber crime. Follow these few simple steps and make a start in preventing yourself from fraud today.
1. Do not give any personal information (name, address, bank details, email or phone number) to organisations or people before verifying their credentials.
3. Beware of phishing emails. Your bank will never ask you to click on a link in an email to verify your details, even if it does look genuine. If you are unsure always call your bank first using the number on the back of your card.
2. Destroy receipts and post with your name and address and/or bank details on. This is all fraudsters require to clone your identity!
4. Make sure your computer has sufficient and up to date adware and malware protection, anti-virus software and firewalls installed where appropriate. LogoSystems advise and assist with implementing the best protection for your machine for all subscription customers.
If you have been a victim of fraud, call Action Fraud, the National Fraud & Cyber Crime Reporting Centre on 0300 123 2040.
Stay safe online.
