Phishing and Taxes: How Treasury and Finance Professionals Can Fight the Latest Cybersecurity Threats

Just in time for Tax Day, the IRS issued a new new phishing scam warning. This ingenious new threat combines business email compromise and W-2 fraud; cybercriminals posing as company executives send emails to employees in payroll and HR, requesting a list of all employees and their W-2 forms. The result: stolen money and reams of confidential data.

In this episode of AFP Conversations, host Ira Apfel talks to Brian Lapidus, Practice Leader, Identity Theft and Breach Notification, with Kroll, a risk management firm. Lapidus explains what treasury and finance professionals can do to fight this new battle in the war on cyberfraud, and he reveals other new cyberscams as well as additional advice.
