Did you know that about one in two Australian businesses reported at least one incident of economic crime in the past 12 months, with 16 per cent of respondents suffering losses in excess of $5 million?

Online fraud not only has the potential to cost you and your customers thousands of dollars, it can also cause long-term damage to your business reputation, costing you many times more in lost revenue. That’s why it’s essential to act now to protect your business.

Unless you’re using NetLock, your business is liable for any financial losses caused by fraudulent transactions made with your CommBiz service. But by using our innovative security device, NetLock, and taking a few simple precautions, you can transfer some of this risk to us.

We’re so confident in NetLock’s ability to protect your business that we’ve introduced a new CommBiz security guarantee. As long you are using NetLock and follow a few basic security precautions, we guarantee to refund losses as a result of externally manipulated transactions (see the CommBiz Security Guarantee in the CommBiz terms and conditions for more details).

So you can bank online with confidence, knowing you’re better protected than ever against cybercrime.
