Business Email Compromise Attacks – What They Are and How They Target Your Business
Host Jim Paulick is joined by Chris Teodorski, Managing Security Consultant at Guidepoint Security, to discuss Business Email Compromise (BEC) Attacks.
In these attacks, a hacker gains access to an email account and impersonates your coworker, client, or other trusted advisor, often sending an email request for (fraudulent) payment, which appears to be a legitimate email. BEC’s accounted for $1.8 Billion worth of losses to businesses in 2021, according to the FBI.
Jim & Chris discuss the methodologies of these attacks, and what you need to know to protect your business.
