Business Email Compromise Attack Trends Report
In the second half of 2017, Business Email Compromise attacks continued to accelerate with 96% of organizations experiencing attacks.
Because BEC attacks have no payload (such as a malicious attachment or URL) to detect and block, they are able to slip past most conventional security technology used to protect organizations.
