What is BEC (Business Email Compromises)?
Are hackers lurking in your inbox? Would you even know if they were?
BEC stands for Business Email Compromises, which is a broad term for when a hacker gets access to your business email account, and then pretends to be you, either to gain access to private information or money transfers often with a sense of urgency.
The hackers can be patient threat actors and they lay dormant in compromised email accounts watching and learning everything about what you do until they identify an opportunity to execute an attack.Chris Cummings, CEO of Petra Technologies
