NatWest launches cryptocurrency scam alert

NatWest mobile banking app users are being warned to beware of cryptocurrency scams, which are in the increase and getting increasingly sophisticated.

In this latest variant, users are invited to fill in an online form to create a cryptocurrency wallet, but hackers insert a backdoor so they can access the wallet and remove the contents.

The BBC tech site has the full story but should you update your user training to cover this specific threat? And if you don’t offer your staff and volunteers IT security training, I would encourage you to start.
