Protect your business from coronavirus-related scams

With remote working increasingly common, remember that anywhere staff might work becomes an extension of your workplace and security needs to be maintained at the same level.

It’s especially important for employees to be aware of the dangers that fraudsters are exploiting the spread of COVID-19 coronavirus to facilitate various types of fraud and cybercrime.

Employees should be continually reminded of the risks of fraud and cybercrime, and what they should do:

Remember to think twice

Be alert to suspicious phone calls, texts or emails from anyone claiming to be from the bank with a message about coronavirus.

Trusted organisations will NEVER ask you for your full PIN or password, card reader codes, or ask you to move money from your account.

Business payments

Payments are central to the successful running of almost all businesses. Whether making or receiving payments, it's important make sure they are secure.

Electronic payment security

Electronic payments can have great benefits, but it's also important to make sure they are secure. 

Card security

Whether using a corporate card or facilitating card payments, it's important to stay secure. 

Cheque payment security

Although in decline, if you use cheques it's important to be aware of the risks. 

Corporate security

From physical office space to online security, businesses must consider the security of their full operation. Make sure your company is protected. 

Common business scams

Fraudsters specifically target businesses with certain scams. It's important to recognise and report these as early as possible.
