David Jemmett CEO of Cerberus Sentinel, describes how BECs have become even more targeted in the past year
Cybercriminals are opportunists by nature, so it’s no surprise to see that they continuously exploit attack vectors that have been proven to show success. Of these attack vectors, phishing and business email compromises (BECs) are often the most fruitful. With the significant frequency and value of phishing and BEC scams, many criminals turn to this tried and proven social engineering technique. In fact, the FBI reports that BEC scams cost enterprises more than $26 billion worldwide between 2016 and 2019.
