The CFO and Finance Team: A Key Player in Your Company's Cybercrime Defense Strategy

In today's digital age, cybercrime is a growing concern in Australia for businesses of all sizes. As a result, the role of the CFO and finance team in protecting a company's sensitive information and assets from cyber threats is more important than ever.

The finance team is responsible for managing the financial health of a company and has access to sensitive information such as bank details, customer information, and confidential business data. As such, they are often targeted by cybercriminals looking to exploit this information for financial gain (finance teams are constantly getting phishing emails and social engineering attempts on social networks).

To effectively protect a company from cybercrime, the CFO and finance team must be proactive and take a strategic approach to cybersecurity. This includes implementing robust controls and processes to secure sensitive information, providing regular cybersecurity training to employees, and regularly assessing the company's cybersecurity posture.

We find it crucial for the CFO and finance team to work closely with other departments, such as IT and Legal, to ensure that the company's overall cybercrime defense strategy is comprehensive and effective.
