PRimage is concerned at a report from the Federation of Small Businesses which shows that small firms lose up to £800 a year to fraud and online crime!
According to their survey more than half (54 per cent) of businesses reported being a victim of crime in the last twelve months – 37 per cent having problems with phishing emails, 15 per cent falling victim to card not present fraud and another 15 per cent falling foul of IT problems caused by viruses and hackers. Judy Viitanen regularly has problems with phishing emails: they are a real plague! All companies should be aware of these problems – and especially take note that most fraud, where it has a financial impact, costs small businesses between £500 and £5,000. PRimage totally support the FSB’s lobbying for more action to tackle online crime.
