Fraudsters can get hold of a huge amount of information about your company and its activities – even without visiting your offices.
The trick is to gather what looks like innocent information from a wide range of sources – helping the fraudsters establish an accurate picture of your business. Then they’re ready to strike.
Non-employees, such as visitors, contractors or cleaners, probably have access to your premises every day.
So it makes sense to review the controls in place to manage this access. For example, are all visitors escorted while they are on the premises? How do you manage access to sensitive areas, such as warehouses or your accounts department?
The vital question is this: with all these people moving around, could they access information that would put you at risk of fraud?
