OUCH! September Edition – BEC/CEO Fraud

Posted on: September 11th, 2018 by No Comments


We are excited to announce September’s edition of the OUCH! newsletter – BEC / CEO Fraud. Led by Guest Editor and FBI Special Agent Don Cavender, we explain what these types of targeted email attacks are, what makes them so dangerous and most importantly how to spot and stop them. Not only are cyber attackers using these attacks on companies, but they are now using them on people in their personal lives. Download and share OUCH! with family, friends and co-workers.
