Business Email Compromise: More Sophistication, More Problems
Business Email Compromise (BEC) is a major threat vector for the private sector. These attacks usually begin with a spear-phishing attempt, with the intent to conduct fraudulent wire transfers or take other data from an organization. This is a very sophisticated social engineering attack, so it's important to understand the way this attack is conducted, as well as how to protect oneself and an organization. This presentation will give a deep dive into email headers, technical issues and solutions around business email compromise attacks. While this is a technical brief, the idea is to give attendees actionable items to take back to their organization to provide awareness and relevant security configurations.
The 60-minute webinar concludes with a moderated live question and answer period.
The session is offered as a complimentary, informational service of Capitol Technology University.
