Protect your details
If your business knows how to protect its details, it can help to keep it safe from fraud.
Protect your accounts
Your business email account is your first line of defence. This can hold a lot of sensitive details that could be used against your firm by a fraudster.
If you don’t have one already, pick a new strong password for the email account. Then do the same for any other accounts your firm may have, such as:
- Bank account.
- Social media accounts.
Save your passwords
Use a different, strong password for each account your firm has.
If you need help to remember them, you can use your browser. Your browser settings should let you save each password.
Browser security is very good, so it’s a safe thing to use and helps to make it easier to log on.
Keep online account details private
You may need multiple log on details for Internet Banking to cover each member of staff who has to bank online. These details need to be kept private as they allow access to your online banking account.
When somebody leaves your business, make sure you get in touch to let us know. This will help to keep your account safe.
If an account asks you to set security questions, try to avoid using personal or business details.
When you bank online, we use two-factor authentication (2FA) to make sure it’s you. This makes it harder for someone to get into your account, even if they guess your password.
Other online providers and apps also use 2FA. If they do, it’s a good idea to turn it on as it will help to keep you safe.
If you think someone else knows your banking details contact us now.
