them to impersonate individuals. Below, we look at some of the most common types of fraud, explaining what they mean and how you and your business can avoid becoming a victim.
Business owners and managers in legal businesses may be more aware than some that they are at risk, but do you and all your colleagues know the main ways businesses are targeted by fraudsters? Read below about the main types of business fraud and how to protect yourself.
Most businesses have an online presence and all use technology to communicate. Criminals continue to develop techniques to exploit weaknesses in computer systems. They can also trick staff into downloading malicious software or releasing customer information. Understanding how to protect your business from this threat is essential.
To protect the public, the websites of all CLC regulated practices must carry a compulsory secure badge to reduce the risk of impersonation through cloned or copied websites and help identify fake firms that claim to be regulated by the CLC.
