Uncovering the Latest BEC Attack Trends

The success of a Business Email Compromise (BEC) attack lies in exploiting the trust and familiarity between sender and recipient, and evading traditional security solutions by eliminating the use of malicious URLs or attachments – which existing security solutions were never designed to do.

According to the FBI, BEC attacks were responsible for more than $5.3 billion in exposed losses between 2013 and 2016. With the problem still unsolved, a new framework is now providing a better way to measure the effectiveness of different security controls, and insight into why these threats are difficult to detect.
