Hackers and scammers aren’t on lockdown amid the coronavirus pandemic, they’re working harder than ever to undermine your business operations. Both small and large businesses are falling victim to fraud as cybercriminals are taking advantage of the current climate and seeking opportunities to commit payroll and vendor account fraud, phishing email scams, and check fraud. As always, your best defense is to be extra vigilant, aware of who you are communicating with, and most importantly, to not let your guard down.
Atlantic Union Bank is here to help our business clients stay safe and informed with the free webinar: Keeping Your Business Safe from Fraud During COVID-19. What you’ll learn may help you identify a potential cybercrime and foil an attack on your business’ well-being, financial infrastructure, and core integrity. (Especially recommended for business owners, accounts payable staff, payroll admins, and bookkeepers).

A phisher disguises themselves as one of your trusted vendors and requests you to redirect a payment.
