Top tips

  • Keep your passwords safe. NEVER give your online banking passwords or card reader codes to anyone who calls, emails or texts.
  • Double-check all invoices or payment requests that come by email. Call the sender on a phone number you know and trust, not one from an invoice or message.
  • Think before you click. Only download files or click on links from a trusted source. Check first to make sure it’s safe.
  • Train your staff regularly as it can help to keep your business safe. Use our free online training course.
