Every company is susceptible to fraud. This is largely because there are so many different kinds of fraud.
Cybercriminals adapt their ways almost as quickly as cyber security firms make new products and services. It is almost impossible to protect against every type of attack.
1. Secure Your Accounts
Have you not made a different credit card or bank account for your personal life and business? You need to do this as soon as possible. If a hacker gets hold of a single account, he or she will gain entrance to other account. You need to evaluate your security systems when it comes to banking online and make sure that you are able to automatically log out. You need to create a monitored reimbursement expense policy for your team members and hold on to it. Make sure that your credit card provider is fraud protected since you are giving your credit card numbers to your employees.
2. Safeguard your computers
Computer hackers are trying to get in to your computer. You will need a firewall to secure the information that your business has. Software that blocks viruses can assist you in helping detect breach of information as well. Look for cyber security vendors that fit all of your needs. Your team members also need to create passwords that are difficult to hack into. Your employees will need to switch up their login information every sixty to ninety days.

3. Do an employee background check
While you are increasing your employee count, you will need to find people who you can trust. You shouldn’t rely on references on their resume. You need to do a deep background check on everyone you let in. Some businesses could bring this service to you. It costs only thirty to fifty dollar for one report. You can filter out your candidates and run a background check right before you decide who to bring on your team. You will also need to ask permission before doing the background check.
4. Make a protected entrance
A protected entrance system could prevent people who you don’t want to give access to. Some key-card systems bring out clock-in and clock-out records of a worker’s entrance and exit from your office.
Management can also limit access to specific areas to certain people. For example, you could use a key card system to only let the tech managers inside the server room. Limiting the access to sensitive areas will keep you and your business safer.
