Be Vigilant During Business Disruptions Related To COVID-19

The current upheaval can make your business vulnerable to fraud.

Temporarily laid off employees may have overseen important accounting or controls. Were those duties re-assigned — and are they now well covered?

Employees working remotely may have access to online banking accounts. Who’s keeping an eye on the transactions?

Team members may be facing increased financial pressure. How is management addressing this?

Growing stress and distraction increase fraud opportunities. Are your employees aware of and prepared to face these threats?

You’re operating with a reduced workforce. Is each department adequately staffed to address all your risks and obligations?

Your physical locations may be unattended. Are your important assets locked up and under surveillance?
