Online fraud and cyber crime toolkit
The Corporate Finance Manager’s guide to protecting your business against online fraud.
Businesses must look to prevent fraud, rather than hope to cure its consequences.

Helping you protect your business
The impact of cyber fraud on a person or a business can be devastating. The perpetrators are often located in many different jurisdictions making them exceptionally difficult to identify and track down.
This makes it difficult to investigate fraud and, crucially, very hard to recover funds. For this reason, businesses must look to prevent fraud, rather than hope to cure its consequences.
At Barclays, we are dedicated to helping you protect your business from the risks of cyber fraud attacks.
This toolkit has been designed to give Corporate Finance Managers and their teams an overview of the key threats their business face, and the steps they can take to try and mitigate this fraud.
This is not just a one-time piece of learning. Fraudsters are constantly adapting their techniques to avoid detection, so it’s important that you and your teams regularly engage with fraud awareness.
In the toolkit you will find an overview of the three main categories of fraud your business is likely to encounter:
Chapter 1 – Social Engineering
- Invoice fraud
- CEO impersonation
- Vishing and smishing.
Chapter 2 – Malware
Chapter 3 – Network Attacks
- Man-in-the-middle attack
- Distributed Denial of Service (DDOS) attack.
