Business Email Compromise (BEC) and Email Account Compromise (EAC) scams have cost the victimized businesses over $26 billion since 2016. What BEC and EAC have in common is that they target people, rely on social engineering, and are designed to solicit fraudulent wire transfers or payment. Unlike malware attack, BEC and EAC don’t typically include detectable malicious payload. These types of threats can be hard to recognize because to the target these business requests sent by the impostors seem very routine and reasonable.
