Since then, Floristique
founder, Wendy Han has resolved to bounce back stronger than before from this
experience and had implemented a full suite of cybersecurity strategies geared
towards providing maximum protection against online attack.

 

One of such
strategies involve the integration of multi-factor authentication (or two-step
verification) to ensure the deliveries reached the right recipients. A monthly
routine of password change was adopted coupled with a thoroughly inspection of
transactions and other bank activities to identify suspicious activities or
abnormal transactions.
