BEC Attacks are a growing threat to your business. Don't let it fall prey to them

email phishingBEC (business email compromise) attacks are becoming more common and pose a serious risk to all businesses. Hackers pose as trusted organizations or individuals to request financial transfers or sensitive information via email.

BEC attacks are often directed at high-ranking employees such as financial managers or executives. They can also be extremely sophisticated. They may even go to great lengths in order to appear authentic by using logos and email addresses. Sometimes, attackers may be able to access an employee's email account in order to send BEC messages to partners or other employees.

BEC attacks are often carried out using the "man in the middle" technique. This is where the attacker pretends to be a vendor or supplier and asks for payment or sensitive information. These attacks are difficult to detect as the attacker might use legitimate email addresses or logos to appear legit. An attacker tricks the victim into believing they are communicating with a trusted person. This can result in them divulging sensitive information and making financial transfers to the attacker.

It is important to take strong email security precautions and train your employees about the dangers of BEC attacks in order to protect your business. Your business can be protected by two-factor authentication and monitoring unusual activity. Red flags such as requests for sensitive data or financial transfers from unknown organizations or individuals, or requests to transfer money into unfamiliar bank accounts, should be raised by employees.

Do not click any links or download attachments from suspicious emails. Instead, verify the request using a secure channel such as calling the sender at a valid number.

Businesses of all sizes are increasingly at risk from email compromise attacks. You can protect your company from damaging and costly BEC attacks by taking proactive measures to secure your email communications. Contact Integrated Technology Systems for help with securing your company's data.
