Keep your business safe from becoming a victim of cyber fraud

Many consumers believe that the companies they do business with provide the essential elements of digital trust and customer data protection, so they will take their business elsewhere when a business doesn’t meet their expectations. All companies are increasingly focused on providing their customers with the best possible services, but this may not be enough. However, many business finance team don’t take into account what is important – data protection, payment protection, and privacy.

What you need to know about cyberfraud

As the Optus data breach shows, cyber attacks can have far-reaching consequences for businesses and their employees. In a public statement, Optus CEO Kelly Bayer Rosin stated that it is still unclear who is behind the breach and what their motives are. However, if the attack was motivated by financial gain, the stolen data is likely to spread quickly across the dark web. This underscores the importance of taking steps to protect your business and its data from cyber threats.

It is believed that the people behind the cyberattacks were able to access an insecure API that required no login to access customer data. This is due to a lack of security in accessing the API. The hacker was able to understand what the API provided and download all the customer data without any authentication.

Given the sensitivity of the data, many criminals will be interested in acquiring a copy of this database. They’ll use it to improve their fraudulent activities and make money by selling it to other cyber-criminals. Over the next few weeks, months, and years you can expect a spike in phishing emails. Some of these may use stolen ID numbers and personal information from individuals whose accounts were breached.

Optus claims that no corporate information was at risk when its network was compromised. However, as we all know, just one click from a person on their business email address can give cybercriminals access to their devices, emails, and passwords. Therefore, the need for cyber prevention is essential so that everyone in your organisation is vigilant about potential cyber fraud activities.

More importantly, CFOs and specifically, finance team members must have an even higher degree of caution to minimise the risk of fraud in vendor details and payments.

Traditionally, fraudsters have targeted so-called “push payment redirection scams” where they use a legitimate email address from one of your suppliers and change the payment details on an invoice before sending it over to you for approval. Once you approve it, the money gets transferred to their account instead of the supplier’s.

It’s up to Accounts Payable Managers and Finance Teams to have the right controls in place to prevent these types of scams.

Australia’s online hacks shows need for solid security systems

Optus’ data breach will change the way Australians pay for things. Their payment information could be used to purchase goods and services in Australia or overseas, which increases their risk of identity theft.

A recent McKinsey survey shows that many consumers will only buy from companies with a reputation for protecting consumer data. If a company violates customer trust, 40% of respondents report they’ll take their business elsewhere. This rate increases among frequent online shoppers, B2B purchasers, and Gen Z respondents. In the past year alone, 14% of all respondents stopped doing business with a company because they disagreed with how it protected personal data.

The latest research indicates that Australia’s SME businesses, particularly manufacturing and wholesale distribution business are the next targets as they have the most vulnerabilities and least security systems in place.

What to do next to protect your business

Setting the right controls to measure performance and monitor risks is a challenge. Good business decisions are critical to protecting a company’s reputation, financial security, and future. Internal controls help you achieve these goals. The use of internal controls can help reduce your chances of committing accounting errors that might lead to fraud and losing money.

Don’t rely solely on internal controls to protect your data, because they won’t. If a fraudster can get access to your system, you don’t want them to be able to send money out of your business. eftsure sits on top of your accounting processes and verifies outgoing payments in real-time, ensuring only approved funds are being sent to the intended recipient. When internal controls fail — as they sometimes will — you really need something like this.
