5 Steps to Help Protect Your Business Accounts from Cyber Criminals

Cash Management | Fraud Prevention


1. Educate your employees.

You and your employees are the first line of defense to protect your business. A strong security program paired with employee education about the warning signs, safe practices, and responses to a suspected incident are essential to protecting your company and customers.

2. Protect your online environment.

It is important to protect your cyber environment just as you would your cash and physical location. Visit websites directly instead of clicking on links, download verified/known software, install virus protection, keep software up to date, and verify that a backup of critical data is stored at a separate location.

3. Add safeguards to prevent unauthorized transactions.

Consider implementing fraud prevention controls such as transaction limits for accounts and debit cards, dual-control authorizations and Positive Pay which can help prevent unauthorized transactions.

4. Be alert for suspicious activity and react quickly.

Watch for unexpected transactions or network activity. If suspicious account or network activity is detected, immediately contact the Bank, and disconnect any systems that may have been compromised. Keep records of what happened.

5. Review your Insurance

Identify what would be covered or not covered if you were to experience a cyber event. Having adequate, reliable insurance may decrease your costs and time-to-recover after a cyber attack.
