Fraud Awareness

As part of Barclays drive to increase cyber fraud education and awareness, we have developed a new cyber fraud education and awareness training module in association with Barclays Digital Wings. This training module is now live and covers: current fraud and cyber threats to businesses; real case studies seen across the industry; and a quiz to test understanding.

Please share the link  with your team and please encourage all staff to complete the awareness module; particularly those staff making payments.

May we recommend that you visit the module periodically as it will be updated from time to time when new threats emerge.

We hope that this helps you and your team to prevent and detect fraud and suspicious activity.

March Lunch

So, the Bunnies Arrived

We gathered for our March and pre-Easter Lunch at La Buvette. Not quite a sunny day but pleasant and certainly a relief from the snow and chilled winds a few days earlier. A good turnout, we welcomed new faces and some regular faces too. The atmosphere was vibrant, and it was heartening to witness much mentoring and business exchanges taking place. Professionals of similar businesses comparing codes of practice and methods of working as well as advice being given to some of the self-employed business owners. Maintaining the more convivial and relaxed atmosphere over the Fare offered by the team at La Buvette. Conversations were such that a continuation was demanded at the local Rincon Bar where the afternoon passed into early evening when carriages were summoned to venture homewards.

 

Our next gathering Thursday 26th April when hopefully Spring will be in the air, Annual Accounts and returns complete and a Summer to look forward to.
