Leech Tishman Releases Latest Episode of Data Privacy LawTalk Podcast: Business Email Compromise Attacks – What They Are and How They Target Your Business



Leech Tishman is pleased to announce the latest episode of the Data Privacy LawTalk podcast titled, “Business Email Compromise Attacks – What They Are and How They Target Your Business.”
Business Email Compromises (BEC) are a form of social engineering cyber attack that targets small, medium and large companies. Typically, the attacker gains access to an email account, studies the transactions of that target, and then impersonates them and often reports a “change in payment” or “wire instructions” to a customer, vendor, or other person during a critical stage of the business relationship to maximize the impetus to make a hasty payment to someone they know and trust. This type of attack is on the rise, is rarely covered by insurance. According to the FBI, in 2021, BEC’s cost businesses approximately $1.8 Billion in losses.
In this latest episode, host James “Jim” K. Paulick is joined by Chris Teodorski, Managing Security Consultant at Guidepoint Security, to discuss the methodologies of these attacks, and what you need to know to protect your business.
