Frequently Asked Questions

Business Email Compromise (BEC) scam is a type of cybercrime that aims to trick individuals or companies into making fraudulent payments, disclosing confidential information, or initiating unauthorized wire transfers. BEC scammers typically use email spoofing to appear as legitimate senders and trick their targets into performing actions that benefit the attackers. According to the FBI, BEC is one of the most financially costly crimes, resulting in more than $13 billion in losses globally from October 2013 to July 2019.

Account takeover (ATO) protection is a type of cybersecurity solution that safeguards user accounts against unauthorized access by cybercriminals. ATO protection solutions use various authentication methods, such as two-factor authentication, artificial intelligence (AI), and machine learning (ML), to detect and prevent ATO attacks. By controlling access to sensitive information, ATO protection technology helps to prevent unauthorized changes, unauthorized monetary transactions and maintains the credibility and confidentiality of business information. In the context of BEC scams, ATO protection systems help to safeguard against attacks aimed at gathering login credentials to hijack email accounts and execute fraudulent payments.

BEC scammers use various techniques to target businesses, but the most commonly used technique is spear-phishing. Spear-phishing is a tactic that involves creating emails or websites that appear legitimate and trustworthy to the targeted users, making them more likely to click links, open attachments, and share confidential data. Sophisticated social engineering techniques are employed to convince a target of the legitimacy of these emails and sites. These emails and websites can be used to gather user login credentials, initiate fraudulent transfers or redirect financial data. The impersonation of high-level executives within an organization is also a recurrent strategy used by BEC actors.
