THIS REALLY HAPPENED
Money travels fast, especially in investment banking. One particular bank became our client because of an unfortunate event that forced the partners to take a hard look at their policies and procedures. To make a long story short, two competing objectives were clashing; the desire to beat monthly growth estimates, and the desire to keep the big clients happy. Hackers count on human nature to steal money. An email was sent from one of the partners to his assistant, instructing her to wire $600K to a new account. She did as she was instructed. They found out the next day that the email did not come from the partner. The assistant sent all of that money to a hacker. All the hacker did was learn a few email addresses, ﬁrst names, and the roles of the individuals. He/she made the email look legitimate and succeeded in pulling oﬀ an easy one. This kind of hacker might send thousands of these phishing emails every year. They know that it only takes one unsuspecting employee to make a big proﬁt. We worked with them to help create their new policies and procedures, which every employee has signed their agreement to. This, combined with employee training, has created an eﬀective process that keeps mistakes from happening while giving the employees an easy, dependable process to rely on.
WHY REMOTE TECHS?
Someone once said that processes don’t fail, people do. We disagree because there are plenty of illﬁtting processes out there. Policies, procedures, and training need to be at the heart of any organization, and they need to ﬁt the organization’s mission and objective like a glove. We have designed technology for so many diﬀerent companies, with such a wide variety of industries, and we’ve seen some scary things happen. Working with us lets you leverage our unique perspective and experience to make your company stronger and more secure.
