When it comes to an organization’s security, business email compromise (BEC) attacks are a big problem. One primary reason impacts are so significant is that attacks often use a human victim to authorize a fraudulent transaction to bypass existing security controls that would normally be used to prevent fraud. Another reason is that social engineering lures may be expertly crafted by the attacker after they have been monitoring a victim’s activity for some time, resulting in more effective phishing campaigns with serious security implications.
