Cybersecurity in 2020: Stopping the Surge of Business Email Compromise


Up to 80% of businesses in the U.S. have been targeted by fraudulent actors using Business Email Compromise (BEC) tactics.

Not only is the threat of BEC growing, it is also becoming increasingly sophisticated as overseas fraud operators actively share intelligence such as stolen PII, corporate vulnerabilities, and new tactics. This has also helped heighten the effectiveness of BEC attacks.

Although many businesses are aware of the threat, recent disruptions in established processes – such as working remotely and reliance on (often unsecured) video and teleconferencing – and the introduction of artificial intelligence into fraud tactics, have left many businesses unprepared and highly susceptible to BEC attacks.
