“It seemed a bit weird, but I paid it anyway”

“It seemed a bit weird, but I paid it anyway”

Imagine this. You get back from a lovely holiday abroad. And on a routine check of the business’s bank account, you see a payment for £5.5k made to a supplier you don’t recognise.

So you check with Sandra in accounts. And her words make you feel sick.

“You asked me to pay it last week, boss. You emailed me and said it was a new supplier and the payment was urgent. It seemed a bit weird, but I paid it anyway”.

This is a real scam. It’s where hackers gain access to the boss’s email, and play the long game.

They watch and learn how the boss likes to communicate. Then wait for them to be out of contact for a while. And send an email, pretending to be them, with a new payment request.

There’s usually an element of urgency to it. Many staff just pay it, rather than risk annoying the boss on holiday…

There are a number of ways to prevent something like this from happening. Some are technology; others are training. Really, you need a mix of both.

We can help you with this. Helping to protect businesses from cyber crime is what we do.

It’s said that humans decide whether they like each other within the first seven seconds of meeting.

Whether right or wrong, that all important first impression has won and lost interviews, contracts and first dates all over the world.

Unfortunately, winning people over within the first few seconds is even more challenging in today’s digital world.

The way you represent your company online has the power to make or break a relationship…  way before you’ve had the chance to show them how good you are.

From websites to blog posts, social media updates to online contact forms, today’s customer has a huge amount of information at their fingertips to help them decide who they want to buy from.

But that’s just the start. Once they do choose to buy from you, it’s important to show them they made the right decision.

Your IT set up plays a huge role in how customers see you. If you’re not able to keep up with demand, answer their enquiries quickly or show them you care, you can’t expect them to stick around.

Fact: Old out of date IT setups kill sales and damage retention.
