Strong internet security is key


As we move into the freight and fertliser billing period it’s a good reminder to ensure you have strong internet security measures in place.

CBH has been informed of some instances where growers have had their online systems fraudulently accessed by ‘phishing’ attacks.

What is Phishing?

Phishing is the practice of sending fraudulent communications that appear to come from a reputable source. It is usually done through email with the goal of stealing sensitive data like credit card and login information, or to install malware on the victim's machine.

Tips to minimise risks of Phishing attacks

To minimise the risk of being subject to a phishing attack ensure you have strong passwords for your electronic accounts and digital systems and consider changing these regularly.
To keep a vigilant watch for suspicious emails there are few measures you can put in place:

  • Check the email address.  Often phishing emails will come from a public domain.  CBH emails, including invoices will always be sent from the domain.
  • Phishing emails are often poorly written, contain suspicious links or attachments and seek for you to take action.
  • Save the CBH bank details in your online banking portal so that you become aware if bank details are changed.  CBH will always notify growers if our bank details have changed.

Unsure about an email you have received?

If in doubt about a communication or invoice from CBH please contact the Grower Service Centre to provide confirmation – 1800 199 083.
