IT Security Tip #5 – Banks and Business Accounts

IT Security Tip #5 – Banks and Business Accounts

This may shock you about bank fraud on business accounts.  Did you know your company’s bank account doesn’t enjoy the same protections as a personal bank account? For example, if a hacker takes money from your business account, the bank is not responsible for getting your money back. (Don’t believe me? Go ask your bank what their policy is on refunding you money stolen from your account!) Many people think FDIC protects you from fraud; it doesn’t. It protects you from bank insolvency, not fraud.

Here’s the  quick tip: Set up e-mail alerts on your account so you are notified any time money is withdrawn from your account. The faster you catch fraudulent activity, the better your chances are of keeping your money. If you contact the bank immediately, you have a very high probability of foiling a hacker’s attack.

“Cole Informatics designed the network based on our operational requirements, ordered the equipment and licensing for us and delivered exactly what we needed. They provided our remote offices with access to the main server, which we had before, but not in the capacity they were able to provide. As far as designing the network and meeting our needs, they came through on that!”
