• Be Aware of the risks & spread the information within your company
  • Be careful when using Social Media.  By sharing information of where you work & what your responsibilities are –  you increase the risks of becoming a target
  • Avoid sharing sensitive information on the company’s hierarchy (especially on your website).
  • Never open suspicious links or attachments received by email.  Never check personal email on company systems
  • If you do receive a suspicious email, contact your IT department / Support.  They will appreciate the question rather than a ransomware infection

Always carefully check email addresses when dealing with sensitive information / bank transfers.  Fraudsters often use copycat email / domain names where one character differs from the legitimate email address.

  • If you do receive a call/email alerting you of a security breach, do not provide information right away or proceed with instructions.  Always start by calling the person back using a phone number found in your own records or on the company’s official website.
  • If a supplier informs you of a change in payment details, always contact them to confirm the new information.  Keep in mind that the email / phone number provided on the invoice might have been modified
  • Strictly apply the security procedures in place for all payments.  Do not skip any steps and do not give in to pressure
