Companies must stay alert as internet fraud continues to grow

The general public are being warned to be vigilant of cold calls from anti-virus companies, as fraudsters are finding new ways to hack into both personal, and business, systems.

While the target is mainly individual and domestic internet users, small companies will also be at risk.

It is vital you have a clear anti-virus and firewall provision in your office, and that the person responsible for your IT has been made aware of the ever more devious ways that criminals will try to steal your information.
Much like us here at Inspira, it is likely that you will hold numerous detailed records on all your clients and customers, including information about banking, accounting and staff records. Remember that you have a responsibility to your customers and clients to keep their information safe, and it is paramount that you make every effort to ensure you internet security is not compromised.

This website (http://www.getsafeonline.org/) provides some excellent information on how to ensure you stay safe online, including the top ten ways to protect your business (http://www.getsafeonline.org/media/GSO_business_leaflet2.pdf), it’s well worth a read.
