What Is Business Email Compromise (BEC)?
In a Business Email Compromise (BEC) scam, attackers claim to be a trusted entity — either internal or external — before using context, persuasion, and urgency to attempt financial or data theft from targeted accounts.
Globally, business email compromise attacks result in billions of dollars in losses for companies each year. In 2021, the FBI received 19,954 Business Email Compromise (BEC)/ Email Account Compromise (EAC) complaints with adjusted losses at nearly $2.4 billion.
Armorblox Prevents Today’s Advanced Business Email Compromise Attacks
- Vendor Email Compromise
These “long con” attacks utilize compromised third-party vendor email accounts to defraud organizations of money and sensitive data.
- Executive Impersonation
Attackers impersonate trusted executives — like the CEO or CFO — and persuade target employees to take actions that lead to compromise.
- Payroll Diversion Fraud
An attacker, posing as an employee, emails the HR department and changes direct deposit information to fraudulently transfer funds to an external account.
- Credential Phishing
Criminals steal credentials by posing as a reputable entity through emails and fake login pages. They can then use the victim’s credentials to carry out a secondary attack or extract data.
