Cyber Security – Be on Guard

Cyber security remains an important topic for all online organisations and users.

At FMT, we are proactive in following guidance provided by cyber security authorities and governing bodies. This includes having our team complete regular training in cyber security awareness and best practices.

For your part as a user, key things to remember are:

  • Use strong and unique passwords.
  • Don’t participate in social media posts where you are asked questions that could then be used to unlock your bank or online details.
  • Turn on a second layer of protection – for example, have a text sent to your phone with a passcode that’s required as a second form of ID to get into your online accounts.
  • Always download apps from an official app store.
  • Turn on automatic software updates to ensure that you have the latest security measures in place at all times.
    Be suspicious! Particularly of messages from people you don’t know, or when your name is spelt wrong. Delete these immediately and do not engage with them.

When it comes to communications from FMT, we only have two official domains (fmt.co.nz and firstmortgagetrust.co.nz). What this means is that if you receive an email or visit a website and it is not fmt.co.nz or firstmortgagetrust.co.nz it’s not FMT.

If you suspect you have received communication from someone impersonating FMT please let us know by calling 0800 321 113 or emailing [email protected].
