Cybercrime in Focus

Nov 18, 2020 | General Financial Planning News

Cybercrime is an ongoing threat and there has been a spike in this criminal activity during the global pandemic as more people are shopping and spending time online. 

Added to this are the recent data breaches which have been reported in the media.  We have been made aware of numerous clients that have been affected by cybercrime in recent weeks and felt this was an opportune time to share some insights and tips on what to look out for to avoid becoming a victim.
