Chargebacks911® COO & Other Experts Offer Insight on Cybersecurity
Monica Eaton-Cardone offered her tips on cybersecurity best practices for small businesses in a recent feature for FitSmallBusiness.
Anna Dizon of FitSmallBusiness conducted a roundup of industry leaders to get their take on cybersecurity going into 2019. This is a critical topic, as small businesses are highly-vulnerable to malicious actors. While major companies might be a bigger target, they also have deeper pockets and more resources to prevent fraud. Small businesses, on the other hand, don’t have those kind of resources. Even one cybersecurity incident could be deadly to a business with thin margins.
As Co-Founder and COO of Chargebacks911, Monica’s a widely-recognized authority on this and many other topics related to fraud, payments, and IT. Speaking from her unique experience and vantage point, Monica recommends employing a multilayer solution for fraud.
“For example, firewalls and secured Wi-Fi can prevent some attacks, while dynamic passcodes may be more effective to intercept other criminal tactics,” Monica explains. “There’s also a wide range of tools to prevent criminal pre-transaction fraud, and chargeback management to fight back against post-transactional fraud. By leveraging all these complementary tools as part of a cohesive strategy, you can position yourself to stop most attacks.”
