Your business bank account can be cleaned out in minutes!

Your business bank account can be cleaned out in minutes!

Non-business Internet activities on business computers by employees is a common source of lost productivity and this “surfing” can put businesses at a significant risk that can lead to devastating financial losses for your business. Activities at work can literally jeopardize your business. A careless click can compromise business systems, cause the loss or theft of sensitive customer and employee information, or result in cybercriminals cleaning out your business bank accounts. Your business bank account can be cleaned out in minutes!

Infection of business computers by malicious software designed to record keystrokes or steal online credentials such as usernames and passwords (known as "malware") can lead to a corporate account takeover. Once armed with your online banking information, cybercriminals can empty your business bank account in minutes. The manner or cause by which the malware gets on the computers may vary, but the intended results are the same. In addition to adequate security hardware and software, as well as clear policies and procedures governing the use of business computers, all employees with access to business computers and information must also be properly trained to understand and recognize the risks.

Think about your average employee for a moment.

1. Does he or she use a business computer for non-business activities?

2. Do they know and understand the importance (and your business' obligations) to protect sensitive business and customer information?

3. Do they have even a fundamental understanding of basic computer security?

4. Would they know how to recognize a phishing email or a bogus website, or would they blindly click?

5. Would they recognize a social engineering scheme, or would they freely offer up information?

6. If they connect from home or on the road, do they know how to protect against the risks of remote and mobile computing?

As a business owner or executive, how confident are you in your own knowledge? To help eliminate the risk of data and security breaches, offer training to your employees as your very first line of defense.

Call navitend, we offer all aspects of Information Technology and Information Security including training your employees on how to protect the sensitive information they come in contact with daily.
