Why Your Organization Might Need Insurance for Social Engineering Fraud

  • Frauds of confidence and deception can be difficult to detect and can result in a firm handing over tens of thousands of dollars to a criminal without even realizing it — until it’s too late. Your organization might find it difficult to absorb such a financial impact without feeling dramatic, even devastating effects.
  • Social engineering fraud and scams are increasingly common.
  • Anyone in your organization can be made a victim — even a trusted vendor can be the victim of a hacker who poses as the vendor, redirecting your next payment.
  • Smaller organizations often are more vulnerable to fraud because they may lack financial or wire transfer controls that larger organizations may routinely employ.
