Be careful! Recent phishing attacks in New Zealand

With a brief pause for thanks and a nod to fortune I have to say that we are pretty careful in our office. So when one of the team received an email that has been made to look like it was from me, but asked for details of how much money was at hand, and whether an urgent transfer could be made today, they immediately suspected it was a con. It was brought to my attention and will feature as a good example - we like to catch people doing things right, and celebrate them - in our next team meeting. It is also a reminder that even small businesses need good processes: the way our financial management is set up this kind of attack could not be successful, it did not rely solely on a human identifying the problem - we have systems. Systems can operate even with people being absent-minded, away, or replaced with an inexperienced person.
