Protect your business from fraud
We work hard to keep your business safe from scams. But do you and your staff know how to avoid fraud?
Our guides take a closer look at how scams work so you can protect your business. And our training video lets you take part to test your knowledge.
- 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.
