This time its personal: The new wave of business email compromise!
When and where
The rapid rise in cyber-attacks via email is not unsurprising especially when you consider the disruption from the pandemic and rise in hybrid working. However, a more interesting aspect uncovered via a large-scale analysis shows that attackers are adapting fast. It is clear that the days of simple phishing emails claiming to be a ‘Prince wanting your bank details for a massive pay out’, or badly misspelt ‘free $500 Amazon vouchers’ are on the decline. Instead, attackers are utilising highly targeted and multistage strikes that aim to bypass defences in more subtle ways. In this illuminating session sponsored by Cofense, we delve into the details of their latest report to highlight some of the methods at work and ways to counter this worrying trend from both a technical and people centric approach.
