Recap: Motivation Monday: Fraud and Cyber-Security – Are you at Risk?April 13, 2016 . .
Based on the conversation with our panel of experts, “Are you at Risk?” is a rhetorical question. With more than 40% of companies having had a cyber-attack and 60% experiencing attempted fraud, the answer is a resounding YES.
On Monday morning a great group joined experts from Incrementa, MLT Law and HSBC for an informal panel about fraud and cybersecurity. The panel touched on many threats, including ransomware and malware attacks, privacy and data loss, financial fraud and the trends.
While many in the group agreed we should have hosted on a Tuesday and called it “Terrifying Tuesday”, the panel had some great takeaways for the audience:
- Get rid of paper cheques and move to electronic payments.
- Educate your staff on security and fraud. Be sure they feel comfortable asking questions when they’re unsure about activities.
- Just locking your door is no longer enough. Work with a security expert to develop a security program that’s right for your company.
