Is your company prepared to respond to the high risk of cyber fraud? Or are you waiting until it’s too late?

 

Every day there seems to be a new cyber fraud case making headlines. Perpetrators aren’t all from the shady world of organized crime; employees also may be susceptible to committing cyber fraud, especially in the volatile economic climate. 

 

Companies cannot afford to sweep cyber crime under the rug. Prudent risk management begins with assessing the potential for cyber fraud and institutionalizing tactics to shut down or reduce the threat. These include but are not limited to email usage protocols, data encryption, spam and virus filtering, system scans and ongoing vulnerability assessments, many of which can be executed in the Cloud.
