business need a dedicated executive responsible? You need to understand where your high-value data resides and protect it.”


Fraudsters employ various methods, including vishing (a telephone scam to get someone to surrender private information that will be used for identity theft), ‘bogus boss’ fraud, and invoice redirection, the last-mentioned being extremely prevalent. If you received a letter from a key supplier asking you to update account details you have on file, would you take this at face value or take steps to verify it?


“Think about some of the larger amounts you pay to suppliers,” said NatWest Fraud Analyst, Sarah Grant. “What would you do if you had to pay that again? If you get a request to change a supplier’s account details, call that supplier on a number you already have and verify everything independently.”


Machine registration and tracking


A new search system was revealed by Kevin Howells, MD of Datatag ID Ltd. He reminded delegates that the Cesar construction and agricultural equipment security and registration scheme is now ten years old. Its widespread adoption, together with better machine

security and the use of more tracking systems, has reduced plant theft, but more still needs to be done.


Datatag’s LOAK8 system trawls the web to gather information on missing machines from various sources.


A new virtual search and recovery system called LOAK8 is being refined. This will take all available information about a missing machine (including Cesar data and serial numbers) to conduct comprehensive searching on the Internet in, not only the surface web, but also the ‘deep web’ and ‘dark web’. In its ‘Search & Match’ phase, it will use sophisticated matching and ranking algorithms with neutral, semantic and social web technologies. Amongst the very many sites investigated for signs of a missing machine will be sales and auction listings, eBay, Bing, Google and Yahoo.


When a match is identified, the information will be passed to a police liaison team who will check it and, hopefully, recover the machine. More details should be available on the Cesar Scheme/Datatag ID stand (A10) at the Executive Hire Show.
