Saskatoon IT Security Tip #1 – Protect Your Business Bank Account From Fraud
Did you know your company’s bank account doesn’t enjoy the same protections as a personal bank account? For example, if a hacker takes money from your business account, the bank is NOT responsible for getting your money back. (Don’t believe me? Go ask your bank what their policy is on refunding your money stolen from your account!) Many people think CIDC protects you from fraud – it doesn’t. It protects you from bank insolvency, NOT fraud.
Quick Tip: Set up e-mail alerts on your account so you are notified any time money is withdrawn from your account. The FASTER you catch fraudulent activity, the better your chances are of keeping your money. If you contact the bank IMMEDIATELY, you have a very high probability of foiling a hacker’s attack.
Saskatoon IT Security Tip #2: Working from home? Only if it’s Secure!
If you plan on catching up on some work from home AND you’re using a personal device such as a smartphone or personal laptop – DON’T! Unless your personal device is covered under our business security plus plan, you could accidentally introduce a virus to the company’s network.
Quick Tip: ONLY devices that are under our vigilant watch of patching, updating and monitoring should be used to work remote. We can set up a way for you to work from home securely; contact us to get set up to work securely from home.
