Protect your business from Phishing Scams

You have probably already heard about phishing emails, but do you really know how they work, and perhaps more importantly does everyone in your team know what to look out for?

The Hackers who use these scams to get into company computer systems are using sneakier methods every day. Just like a fisherman waiting at the waterside, the longer they are prepared to wait for the better their catch will be.

Phishing is about luring prey into making big mistakes, sometimes millions of people are targeted, others it is just a carefully selected handful. In Phishing scams,

Cyber Criminals set up fake email accounts that look like they are from trusted sources to trick their victims into sharing information.

They might pretend to be the MD or the CEO or even the IT Manager, whoever they are masquerading as there will be a sense of urgency about their email that makes people panic.

They will try to gain access to sensitive company systems or get money transferred to them. You may well be wise to these scams but are you sure everyone on your staff is as tech-savvy?

You might be surprised, the reason these scams are so lucrative is that sensible people get caught out by them every day.

Our Educational Guide tells you everything you need to know about Phishing scams and what you need to do to make sure no one in your organisation gets caught out.

Our email wasn’t performing very well so we asked Hamilton Systems to take a look & Carl proposed to migrate us to MS Exchange.

Carl was very helpful throughout & the migration went very well.

He was on hand to sort out any teething issues, taking calls early morning & into the night, to ensure we were up & running smoothly.

Would recommend for knowledge, attention to detail & great customer service.”
