Barclays launches new cyber video

Barclays has launched a new video aimed at helping SMEs protect themselves against the growing cyber threat. The video shows how easily the scam can occur, when an imposter poses as an employee’s boss and demands an urgent transfer of money is made. The imposter has done their research on the business and, thanks to social media, knows the boss is on holiday making it a key time to strike.The employee, not knowing the importance of always checking email addresses doesn’t notice the slight difference in the email address, and is placed under time pressure to meet the payment deadline, not realising that the request isn’t genuine. It’s a common scam, and one that an increasing number of small businesses fall victim to. You can view the video here -
