{Hacker Hour} Business Email Compromise Investigations

Business email compromise (BEC) is a scam where an attacker sends an email that appears to be from an executive in an attempt to trick recipients into clicking a malicious link, sharing sensitive information, or even sending money directly to the attacker. The FBI recently warned that this type of attack has cost U.S. businesses more than $1.6 billion in losses over the past six years. In 2018 we saw BEC become one of the leading attack types, mainly because of how difficult it is to detect.

Join SBS as we discuss common BEC attacks, tips to tell your customers, and simple steps in an initial  BEC investigation.


Hacker Hour webinars are a series of free webinars hosted by SBS CyberSecurity. Unlike paid webinars, Hacker Hours are aimed to meet on a monthly basis to discuss cybersecurity issues and trends in an open format. Attendees are encouraged to join the conversation and get their questions answered. SBS will also offer products and services to help financial institutions with these specific issues.
