Scammers up Their Game with New BEC Attacks
In the last year, BEC tactics have evolved as scammers experiment and benchmark their successes, resulting in better targeting, more convincing scams, and greater losses.
BEC is an acronym for "business email compromise." BEC refers to social engineering attacks used to convince those in charge of finances at an organization to send large payments to the scammers. These attacks are carried out over email conversations initiated by the scammer who spoofs the identity of an executive at the organization.
