As a business and individual, one has to constantly be aware of the evolving tactics cyber criminals are utilizing to get your money and personal information.
Lauren Ruff, Assistant Vice President & Marketing Director with Ixonia Bank, sits down with Corina Kasten, Vice President of Customer Solutions / IT with Ixonia Bank, to discuss some of the ways individuals and businesses can protect themselves against cybersecurity and fraud threats.
Immediate (and relatively low-cost) ways to protect your company against cyberthreats include staying up-to-date on security patches and educating employees. Employees empowered with the resources and knowledge to protect your organization from cyberthreats is one of the best lines of defense you can have.
As an individual, remain alert on the scams that fraudsters continue to use such as romance scams, lottery scams, gift card scams and other phishing methods. If you are ever questioning if something is legitimate or if a scam, please contact Ixonia Bank or your financial institution.
