Lindsay Drabwell, Head of Membership Services EMEA, (ISC)², Zeki Turedi, Technology Strategist EMEA, CrowdStrike
About this talk
As eCrime has evolved over the past decade, Nigerian cybercriminals have evolved too. 419 scammers or 'Yahoo Boys' running simple Nigerian prince scams have graduated to criminal confraternities conducting sophisticated business email compromise (BEC).
In 2017 CrowdStrike Services were repeatedly called in to organisations affected by BEC. Although non-technical in nature, the operations yield highly effective results.
In this webinar we'll share CrowdStrike Intelligence outlining:

- How BEC affects all geographical regions, involving fraud on multiple continents
- Steps you can take to protect your organisation
