Avoiding the Scam! They Needed My Help

Cybersecurity Situations & Awareness

We all want to help our customers or vendors... but a fake email (or an unconfirmed phone call) can get the organization into some real trouble. It only takes one missed step in the process to cause lots of financial devastation. Cyber attacks are increasing each and every day. If your employees don't know how to spot a bad email - or more importantly - ignore organizational policies and procedures when it comes to security, chances are, you're going to get scammed.

Additional Information

When it comes to beating cyber criminals:

  • Do not take shortcuts on processes that are in place to confirm the identity of approved and existing vendors.
  • When employees are involved with the transfer of funds, employees should always take the extra step of verifying that the request is legitimate by making a phone call to verify a request.
  • The phone call should not be to a phone number provided in an email request, since fraudsters will likely substitute a phony number, but to a phone number the company already has on file.
