Fraud is one of the most pervasive threats against small business. Failure to take preventive security measures takes a heavy toll on nearly half of all small businesses: 2.7 million fall prey to identity theft each year according to a Javelin Research report. The Association of Certified Fraud Examiners estimates businesses lose – on average – $200,000 annually to fraud. Small businesses are increasingly the targets of check fraud as well. An interactive webinar titled, “Are You a Target? Protect Your Business from Identity Theft and Fraud” will arm small business owners to fight back against security threats. The free, hour-long interactive webinar sponsored by Deluxe Corporation (NYSE: DLX) will run on Tuesday, Nov. 13 at 2 p.m. EST, 1 p.m. CST and 12 p.m. PST. Deluxe security solution experts Susan Haider, Chris Clausen and David Wietecki will present the fact-filled webinar that includes several real-world scenarios.
