How to protect your company from fraud and scams
Posted on 25th May 2022 at 09:58
You have a lot of obligations as a small business owner to keep your firm running well. One of them is ensuring you have enough security measures to protect your company's and employees' data from fraudulent frauds. Unfortunately, online scams are growing more common, making it more critical to defend your small business from fraud. You must be sure of a few things for this to happen.
1. Educate yourself and staff
You should know all the cybercrimes and ways to prevent them. Keep yourself updated and be alert. Ensure that the staff working for you are equally efficient and works for the company's betterment and do not steal from you. Have a complete background check of each worker.
2. Protect your bank accounts
Separate your business and personal accounts. If hackers get access to one account, they will be unable to access the other, and vice versa. Look into your bank's online banking security systems to see whether features like automatic logout are accessible.
Create and keep to a well-monitored reimbursement policy for employee expenses.
3. Secure the entry
Unwanted visitors can be kept out using a secure entry system. Some key-card systems keep track of an employee's admissions and departures from your offices and offer time stamps.
Furthermore, management can restrict access to specific sections to specific individuals. This can help in the better safety of your workplace.
4. Secure your computer system
Hackers are excellent at breaking into computers. A strong firewall can help protect your company's data, and antivirus software can assist in identifying security breaches early on. There are several well-known cyber-security companies. Employees should get their updated passwords every 60–90 days, and password criteria should be established to help them create strong passwords.
5. Integrating a small fraud management system
Finally, the best thing you can do to protect your small business from scammers is to set up an effective enterprise fraud management system. Enterprise fraud management (EFM) detects and prevents fraud in a corporation by evaluating transaction activity in real-time across numerous company users, accounts, procedures, and channels.
There are various factors to consider when choosing a fraud management system for your company. Look for a tool that provides seamless integration, real-time analysis and results and is affordable.
