A BEC attack (also known as CEO FRAUD attack) is a form of targeted and sophisticated phishing attack where a cyber attacker impersonates an executive (often the CEO), and attempts to get an employee, customer, bank manager or vendor to transfer funds, sensitive information, intelectual property, or whatever valuable to the attacker.
Unlike traditional phishing attacks, which target a large number of individuals, BEC attacks are highly focused.
The attacker will use previously compromised computers, hacked email inboxes, recent company news and media, employees social media activity or social engineering in order to gather data and make these email attacks look as convincing as possible. Each reported attack case is unique, depending on the attacker and the strategy deployed in that specific target.
This high level of targeting and sophistication disables the protection of spam filters (and other cyber security protections) and makes it much, much harder for employees to flag the email as not legitimate, having their security awareness and intuition as their only protection against the attackers skills.

With ZURA trust, attacked employees are protected from organized world-class cyber crime gangs, and no longer rely on their knowledge, intuition and skills as their only protection tools. ZURA trust protects you and your organization from Business Email Compromise.
