EXIM Thailand Alerts Thai Entrepreneurs of Cybercrime Risks Stcoks—12 Sep 18

Bangkok--12 Sep--EXIM BANK

Mr. Pisit Serewiwattana, President of Export-Import Bank of Thailand (EXIM Thailand), said that over the past few years, an increasing number of Thai entrepreneurs, particularly SMEs, engaging in e-commerce have encountered damage caused by a fast-growing cyber menace, seen by a jump in fraudulent transactions such as emails being hacked to masquerade the hackers as an international supplier reaching out to the Thai importers. These Thai importers, on the other hand, will be completely unaware that they are in fact corresponding with a hacker and that their emails are being hacked. When opportunities arise, these hackers will then transform themselves into a trading partner forging changes to the claims on existing trading contracts, substituting the hackers' financial accounts for the actual suppliers'. Meanwhile, the Thai entrepreneurs' email accounts will be blocked and prevented from contacting the actual trading partners directly. The victims' realization of such a forgery will come only too late, with financial losses almost always impossible to recover.

EXIM Thailand President said that cybercrimes can happen to both exporters and importers, particularly SMEs whose computer systems can be hacked more easily than those of large corporates that can better protect their computer systems. Cyberattacks target SMEs
