Every year businesses are hit with increased cybersecurity threats during tax season. Companies of all sizes are at risk of losing valuable information and potential exposure of financial loss. Here are three things you need to keep in mind this tax season.
#1. Phishing Attempts
Phishing is when someone sends an e-mail from what appears to be a trusted vendor, customer, or organization that is designed to steal your information. E-mails can be modified to appear to be from an organization’s server and will likely reflect a domain and username you would expect to see coming from that specific organization.
Be alert to unexpected critical e-mails and reach out to that individual or organization by phone if you feel something is not right. Most trusted parties will not request sensitive data via e-mail; however, also look out for links within emails that can lead to untrusted websites. Modern e-mail clients allow you to hover over a link before clicking, so check for irregular domains and URL shorteners.
#2 Contact from IRS Agents
Cyber criminals may attempt to disguise themselves as IRS agents in order to obtain compromising information about your business and employees. Often, the “agent” will request additional information that is unnecessary for filing purposes but holds tremendous value to them like social security numbers, telephone numbers, and addresses. The IRS will only contact you by U.S. mail!
#3. Internal Actors
The nature of many companies’ work requires individuals other than the proprietor to access critical information. These employees should be made aware of communication procedures and safeguards to prevent cybercrimes from occurring. A majority of cyber incidents are caused by people that are unware of threats.
Remember to be vigilant all year long, just because taxes have been filed does not mean the end of cybersecurity threats.

A growing number of businesses are taking dramatic steps to utilize the internet. From establishing a basic web presence to integrating product and service experiences on the web, companies of all sizes are realizing the benefits of being online.
Although investments in digital technologies typically yield positive returns – many businesses fail to recognize the potential vulnerabilities associated with having information and content so readily accessible.
Even the simplest of cybersecurity breaches can result in a major headache.
Cybersecurity is a critical focus of any business that’s online. OMA Comp has designed a suite of services in the realm of cybersecurity to provide proprietors, employees, and customers with peace of mind while doing business.
Assessment and Guidance
Our experts have helped businesses across a variety of industries assess and improve their cybersecurity measures. Our assessments are comprehensive and consider every component of your online and offline technologies. This assessment is particularly useful for small businesses that have implemented technology themselves and are interested in protecting their business.
Even companies with mature IT functions (primarily those with in-house IT staff) find our external perspective to be useful in determining areas of weakness and steps for driving improvement.
The practice of cybersecurity extends beyond system management – it includes the steps employees take in their everyday jobs. OMA Comp provides on location and offsite training on imperative cybersecurity topics. Although most vulnerabilities are employee related, they are usually unintended. The best way to avoid these errors and to begin combatting malicious attacks is through firsthand training.
OMA Comp wants to do our part to educate and provide tools to individuals and businesses to stay safe online.
OMA Comp is offering a 1 hour Cyber Security Training Seminar for only $180.00* (normally $300.00).

Cybersecurity breaches are becoming very serious, effecting more and more victims.
