Payment fraud is a big risk for any organisation, large or small. Businesses are frequently targetted by fraudsters, posing as existing suppliers in an attempt to have money transferred into a bank account operated by the fraudster.
Are you confident that your business has robust procedures in place to prevent supplier mandate fraud? Would your employees think twice about processing a request to change bank details? Are they fully briefed to be on alert for CEO fraud attempts?
It is essential to
- Implement a strict validation process before reacting to requests to set up or change supplier payment details
- ensure relevant staff have a good awareness of the potential threats and an understanding of what steps to take to mitigate them.
