Aggressive Cybercriminals Are Sophisticated; Security, IT and Finance Teams Must Be Too
People receive more than 120 emails at work per day on average. That’s a lot of emails. So, we categorize and strategize our email activity. But when we see an email from the boss, we tend to open it. And cybercriminals count on that normal behavior to carry out business email compromise (BEC) schemes.
BEC has been on the rise over the last five years, attacking businesses, nonprofits and government. Among the prime targets are executive officers and individuals responsible for making payments or accessing sensitive information. The criminals are very sophisticated. Vendor information professionals must understand the threat and be on guard.
