Understanding Business Email Compromise (BEC) and Protecting Your Organization

Understanding Business Email Compromise (BEC) and Protecting Your Organization

In today's digital age, cyber threats are more prevalent and sophisticated than ever before. One of the most insidious forms of cyberattacks is Business Email Compromise (BEC). Recent data reveals a startling rise in BEC attacks, highlighting the critical need for robust cybersecurity measures.

What is Business Email Compromise (BEC)?

BEC is a type of cyberattack where attackers impersonate business executives or employees to trick recipients into transferring money, divulging confidential information, or engaging in other fraudulent activities. These attacks typically involve phishing emails that appear legitimate, making it challenging to distinguish between genuine and malicious communications.


The Growing Threat of BEC

According to a recent report by Arctic Wolf, one of our trusted partners at iFlock Security Consulting, 70% of organizations were targeted by BEC attacks in the past year alone. This alarming statistic underscores the importance of staying vigilant and implementing comprehensive security measures to protect your organization from these threats.
