Growing Threats To Your Business – Are You Aware?
Corporate Identity Theft (Corporate Account Takeover) is the business equivalent of personal identity theft and occurs when criminal hackers use software, often referred to as malware, to control your computer devices and steal your online business credentials. The criminals then use your online business credentials to initiate fraudulent banking activity.
Your devices can become infected with malware when you attempt to open an infected document attached to an email – or an infected website link within an email. Malware can also be downloaded to a device when you visit a legitimate site, especially a social networking site, and attempt to open a document, video, or photo posted there. Once the malware infects one device, it often has the ability to quickly and efficiently identify and infect other devices within an internal business network – often without detection.
