BEC - FBI calls it the $43B* heist. How to tame this beast?
According to the FBI’s recent IC3 report in 2022, exposed business loss due to BEC accounts for > $43B. Why? At the heart of it, the biggest fear is not the technology, it is the potential of human error that could expose your organization to a cyberattack. The majority of CISOs agree that an employee carelessly falling victim to a BEC/phishing scam is the most likely cause of a security breach. Most also agree that they will not be able to reduce the level of employee disregard for information security. How do we guard against human error without limiting employee efficiency and productivity?
