Think your clients are too smart to be scammed?

Posted by Akankasha Dewan on Aug 29, 2019 1:06:04 PM

It's an important question, considering it's highly likely that your clients will get hit by a scam at some point or another. 

From malicious invoice emails, to phishing links, to CEO fraud, scams can take on multiple forms and target every employee in your business - regardless of seniority.    

Are your clients prepared to deal with the widespread threat of scams?

It's key to be prepared, because the threat is only getting bigger. According to the Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (ACCC), Australians are set to lose a record amount to scams in 2019.

In addition, projections from losses reported to Scamwatch and other government agencies expect to exceed $532 million by the end of the year, surpassing half a billion dollars for the first time.

To help you kickstart the conversation about email security with your clients and leads, we've created two different resources that you can share. We hope these prove useful in educating them about how email scams work and how to identify a fake email from a real one.
