White Paper: BEC Attacks are the Most Costly Form of Phishing

Business Email Compromise (BEC) attacks have plagued organizations all over the world for almost a decade. In fact, the phishing threat has become so pervasive and effective for threat actors that the reported losses to date have already hit more than $26 billion. This does not even include the thousands of unreported BEC attacks that net gift cards and other small denominations.

Business Email Compromise (BEC) attacks are particularly nasty as a threat actor will breach a system and take over an account, which in turn is abused to further propagate other attacks, steal money, or even private information. Join us for a presentation that takes a closer look at how BEC attacks are changing. This is why we BECs are the most costly form of phishing. Traditional phishing certainly can (and does) cause a lot of damage, but on a per-attack basis, BEC is undoubtedly the most expensive.

This white paper provides a closer look into the phishing technique and how to handle the threat.
