What Is Business Email Compromise?

Welcome to this episode of Tech Tip. Tuesday. My name is Philip Long. And today we’re going to talk about business email compromise. So let’s get started. 

So what is business email compromise, really? That’s an IT term for when cyber criminals are using a business email address to exploit users to somehow monetize an email transaction. There’s a couple of ways this can happen. It can happen even as simply as someone sending an email that looks like it came from you. But if you hovered over it, you would see that really it was coming from another account. I want to speak specifically to where your credentials have been stolen and they’re able to access your email account via the web portal. This is one of the most damaging ways because the email indeed is coming from you, and the bad actors will create rules on the back end to drop the traffic that they’re corresponding with the person they’re corresponding with on the back end so that you never really see this email traffic. Well, the easiest way to solve this. And really, any email account that is set up in today’s environment needs to have multi factor authentication. Every email service offers it. A lot of people don’t take advantage of it, and that’s just simply where when you go to log in and it doesn’t have to be when you’re doing Outlook, but only via the Web portal where everyone in the world has access to. All you have to do is get a code text to you and you type in the code or there’s applications that you can simply just click a button. So if you’re running an email service without multi factor, you’re in a lot of danger. If you’d like to find out more, click on the link or hit me up, and I’d be happy to talk to you about how to secure your email accounts.
