People tend to feel more charitable at Christmas, we all like to help in whatever way we can. Giving to those less fortunate than ourselves is often something we become much more conscious of as the festive season draws near. Criminals like to take advantage of human nature, they understand our emotions and know how to tug on our heartstrings! Check out the fourth day of Christmas tip
Be aware that not all “charities” are what they seem, bogus charities can be set up to take advantage of our generosity and these bogus sites are then used by cyber criminals to line their own pockets.
Remember, if you receive unexpected correspondence from a charity, there are a few basic things you can do to verify that you are dealing with a reputable source.
Protect yourself and your identity by staying safe online. Educate your family, friends and staff regarding the severity of phishing, identity theft and social engineering. Cyber security is an important issue, one that we all need to take seriously.
As the festive season approaches, organisations must ensure that staff remain vigilant of phishing attacks.
