What is my fraud and risk exposure?

Cyber attacks are becoming increasingly sophisticated. No matter the size of your business, it's essential that you are aware of the latest risks that could affect your business; and how robust your IT infrasture is in preventing and dealing with attacks. 

What is IT Risk?

IT risk encompasses any potential events that could negatively influence your company's objectives. Understanding what these events could be and how they could manifest, and taking steps to mitigate them, is vital for ensuring future success.

There will always be the risk that a staff member could install a virus – the methods used to infiltrate businesses are becoming increasingly sophisticated. Whilst the immediate responsibility to negate that risk lies with whoever you have entrusted your company’s IT security to, the ultimate ownership is yours.   

With the right advice and guidance, you can put best practice processes in place to ensure this risk is greatly reduced with minimal consequences to your business.

What is IT Fraud?

IT Fraud is a type of risk that all modern organisations face, regardless of their size or industry. With rapid developments in technology and higher value data stored on IT systems, the risks of fraud are more relevant to companies than ever. As a result of malicious activity, your company could lose vast amounts of money, as well as both customer and internal data. Not only this, fraud can significantly and irreparably damage your company’s image and reputation.

There are many different types of fraud, including:

  • Asset misappropriation (false invoicing, payroll fraud etc).
  • Corruption (bribes, conflicts of interests etc).
  • Fraudulent statements (falsifying documents etc).

The most commonly used method of initiating IT fraud is via email. Phishing emails are increasingly common in the workplace, often imitating genuine emails sent by Microsoft, logistics companies or banks.
