How can I safeguard my business against identity theft?

Identity fraud is a growing threat to the small business community, particularly those with lax security systems and a lack of awareness around the dangers of fraud.

However, by taking the right measures you can help protect your business against the risk of identity fraud. Here are some easy ways you can do so:

  • Confirm identities of your customers/suppliers, either electronically or physically, at the outset of a business relationship
  • Check y our financial statements regularly for signs of suspicious charges or withdrawals
  • Change computer passwords regularly
  • Beef up data security
  • Dispose of sensitive documents properly
  • Educate employees on fraud protection
  • Lock your computer before leaving it
  • Run a police/background check on future employees to reduce payroll fraud
  • Avoid having one person as a signatory to important bank accounts
