BEC Continues to Grow

  1. Triple-check the header information in your emails, especially those that include requests coming from executives or people in authority.
  2. If you can’t verify that the request is legitimate over email, reach out via another form of communication. This extra step only takes a few minutes, and it could save your organization thousands in dollars lost.
  3. Forward emails to your executives rather than replying directly. By forwarding the email, the correct email address has to be manually selected, ensuring that a tricky look-alike domain doesn’t enable cybercriminals to take advantage of you.
