Are your admin team receiving fraudulent emails, text messages and phone calls?


Are your admin team struggling to know which emails, text messages and phone calls are legitimate and which are fraudulent?

This is, in fact, a more common issue than you may think. Hackers and profile impersonators are becoming more and more sophisticated in the way in which they are targeting individuals and businesses. This therefore means that people are mistaking fraudulent messages for genuine messages and vice versa. This is a huge problem for businesses as interacting with a fraudulent message (such as clicking on a link or downloading an attachment), you are putting your client’s personal data at risk. However, ignoring genuine messages, you are losing valuable business. This is an issue that needs to be tackled head on and without further hesitation.


That’s where we come in…

“Thank you to both of you for such an excellent and informative presentation. I have asked everyone if they found it useful and the answer was yes from all. I think it has really opened everybody’s eyes to the potential dangers out there and that it can happen both in a business and personal capacity. Loved the analogy between Home Alone and cyber security.”
