Preventing Business Email Compromise

October is Cybersecurity Awareness Month. To help our insureds better protect themselves and their practices from a cybersecurity incident, we will provide cybersecurity-related content in our newsletters and on social media this month.

This week, we are focusing on business email compromise (BEC), which is a technique used to gain access to your company email so criminals can impersonate a co-worker, manager or other trusted business partner to steal sensitive data and money. Email fraud such as this can you cost millions.
