Business Email Compromise

Business Email Compromise

A new kind of email attack

While phishing attempts through email is nothing new -- attackers are becoming more sophisticated in their campaigns and digital interconnectedness, relying on familiarity to trick users into action. By pretending to be an executive or high-profile figure, attackers coerce employees into divulging information and, in the worst scenarios, have them take unauthorized actions such as transfering funds. Legacy security defenses are not equipped to handle the sophistication or the scale of these attacks.

Business Email Compromise example

The rising cost of Business Email Compromise

Business Email Compromise (BEC) involves an attacker impersonating a high-profile executive to defraud employees, customers and partners into sending money, paying fake invoices or divulging sensitive data. Over a three year period, BEC attacks accounted for a cumulative 26 billion global exposed dollars loss. This growing threat targets small companies and large corporations alike and unfortunately, most existing email security solutions are blind to it.
