The bad guys are getting very creative: impersonating an executive in your organization and asking for financial reports, or asking employees in payroll to make changes to bank accounts. According to the FBI, their efforts have earned hackers an estimated $12 billion through Business Email Compromise (BEC), also known as CEO fraud scams. In addition, these attackers can be working on multiple potential victims at the same time.

Invoice fraud, escrow redirection, payroll fraud, and simple wire transfer fraud are all tools in the attacker's arsenal. Defending against these types of phishing attacks is possible by layering technical and non-technical controls.

Join us for this web conference as we take an in-depth look at how the latest attacks work and the psychology and mechanics behind them. We will also discuss defensive measures you can take now to defend your organization against these attacks.

During our program you'll learn:

      •  The truth about Business Email Compromise
      •  How to defend against these attacks using technical and non-technical controls
      •  Why building a human firewall is your best last layer of defense

Be sure to submit your questions ahead of time for our presenters.
