As end of financial year is rapidly approaching, your customers are probably working overtime to tie up loose ends and close off their books. For scammers, EOFY is like Christmas. They ramp up both the scale and the quality of their attacks, aiming to catch out any worker who’s distracted by meeting the June 30 deadline.
At this time of year, they can expect to receive a flood of phone calls, text messages and of course emails from scammers masquerading as CEOs or CFOs, suppliers, and the ATO or other government bodies. Last year alone there were more than 50,000 reports of scammers impersonating the ATO, and as cybercrime rates continue to rise, you can expect this number to increase in 2022.

As you continue to assist your customers in fortifying their cybersecurity strategies, you may like to share our eBook “Protect Your Team from Scams this EOFY” with them so that they’re better protected.
