Business Email compromise (BEC), also known as Imposter Email, is a threat designed to trick victims into thinking they received an email from the CEO or CFO (or any high up company leader).

Spear phishing tends to be a little more targeted, while Whaling is when the target is someone very high with many means and privileges.
Unfortunately, half of people will take the bait. A recent study by Friedrich-Alexander University (FAU) shows that over 50% of people will click on an unknown link out of curiosity in a simulated phishing scam. You’re thinking that you would never do that, but you know very well that some of your staff will…
