This course explores the e-mail fraud schemes known collectively as Business E-mail Compromise (BEC). In a BEC attack, cyberthieves compromise a corporate e-mail account and impersonate the e-mail account’s owner to deceive the company, its customers, partners and/or employees into sending money or sensitive data to the cyberthieves’ account. Some BEC attacks are intended to extract money and others are targeting sensitive information such as tax statements and personally identifiable information (PII).
