business crime cybercrime fraud hertfordshire uk Business crime can have a huge impact on its victims. One in five recorded crimes in Hertfordshire are against businesses and they are the victims of two-thirds of reported frauds in the county (CFIU, Fraud Review, July 2015).

Recorded online crime losses to Hertfordshire businesses were over £6 million in 2015/16 – and the true picture is likely to be higher when unreported crime is factored in.

It can have a serious impact on business staff.  In 2016, nearly 100,000 Morrisons employees had their personal details leaked online, including salaries, national insurance numbers, dates of birth and bank account details. This put them at risk of criminals taking out loans in their name, hacking into personal accounts and many other types of fraud.

This ten-minute course will look at the typical threats businesses and their employees face from criminals and the steps you can take to protect yourself and your business.
