How you can help protect your business.
Be aware of business takeovers! Takeovers are the business equivalent of personal identity theft. Hackers, backed by professional criminal organizations, are targeting small and medium businesses to gather their web banking credentials or remote control of their computers. Proactive steps you can take to avoid, or at least minimize, these threats are:
- Use a dedicated computer for financial transactional activity.
- Apply operating system and application updates (patches) regularly.
- Ensure that anti-virus/spyware software is installed and updated.
- Have host-based firewall software installed.
- Use latest versions of Internet browsers.
- Turn off your computer when not in use.
- Do not batch approve transactions. Approve each one individually.
Additional safeguards you can implement at your company.
- Identify trusted web sites and block access to any sites not relevant to employees business needs.
- Account reconciliation, ACH and wire transfer responsibilities should be segregated and assigned to specific employees.
- Money movement transactions should be initiated only on a stand-alone PC that is not enabled for e-mail and web browsing.
- Vet all employees. Perform credit and background checks before hiring.
- Contact your Information Technology provider to determine the best way to safeguard the security of your computers and networks.
- Perform periodic in-house risk assessments that include system audits and building security.
