Preventing Business Email Compromise
SHARE :           

Business email compromise (BEC) is a technique used to gain access to your company email so criminals can impersonate a co-worker, manager or other trusted business partner to steal sensitive data and money. Email fraud such as this can cost you millions. According to FBI statistics, BEC resulted in losses totaling $1.8 billion in 2020 alone.

While BEC is common and pervasive, there are some simple steps that policyholders can implement to mitigate their risk.
