Canadian business owners and entrepreneurs shouldn’t lose sight of the risk of internal and external fraud. The dangers of fraud are real, and it is a misconception to think that fraud only happens to big firms. A business and its employees can be at risk of many kinds of fraudulent crimes. Companies are at even higher risk now that many parts of business operations take place online, so it is vital to protect against cybercrime.


Today, I share 6 tips on how to protect your business from fraud. I reveal the different types of internal and external fraud that entrepreneurs and small to medium-sized business owners should be aware of and stress the importance of keeping your business vigilant against risks. I also share practical tips that any business can implement to protect themselves against fraud.
