Invoice scams targeting businesses are rising sharply around the world for one simple unfortunate reason - they often work. And it's no surprise that property companies and commercial tenants are quickly becoming prime targets. Commercial property-related invoices such as rent will typically have a high value and a predictable payment schedule making them very attractive to scammers.
Re-Leased has become an important part of how property businesses run all over the world, and we take that responsibility very seriously. Earlier this year we decided it was time to formalise that security commitment by implementing ISO 27001 across the organisation. The whole team here at Re-Leased is deeply dedicated to protecting your data and information, and we now have our ISO 27001 certification to prove it.
Whether an organisation is large or small, spreadsheets are often an overlooked risk by many people.

Yet, the same features that make spreadsheets useful can also make them risky compared to a managed, specialist line of business application such as a SaaS application.
