The 3 scams you need to know about now

Cybercriminals are getting smarter by the day, and new scams are emerging all the time.

While the details of these new scams may be different, many of them follow similar patterns.

Here are three common types of scam to look out for:

One. Phishing emails.

Possibly the most dangerous type of scam for a business, phishing emails pretending to be from reputable sources in order to trick your employees into disclosing sensitive information.

Two. Fake viruses.

Scammers will tell your employees that their computer has been infected with a virus, and encourage them to download antivirus software.

But this software is fake and will give the criminals access to your data.

Three. Email forwarders.

This is where hackers gain access to your email and put in place an email forwarder. Without your knowledge, all incoming email is forwarded to the hacker, allowing them to gather information which they could use to steal money.

Because hackers are using increasingly clever strategies, it’s sometimes difficult to know when you’re at risk.

That’s why it’s important to partner with an IT support company that can help protect you and your business.
