Watch out for Business Email Compromise
In 2013 the FBI noticed a new attack that they called business email compromise (BEC) sometimes called CEO fraud (although it doesn’t always involve the CEO). This is a simple attack that criminals use to steal money and financial information from all sorts of companies. Targets have included large and small corporations, non-profits, churches, and schools. As of 2018 BEC has cost over $12.5 Billion dollars and is on the rise.
