What is CEO Fraud?
A CEO Fraud email, also called “Business Email Compromise” by the FBI , is a type of phishing email that pretends to be from a senior member of your organisation. The email tries to engage another staff member in an email conversation that eventually leads to bank details for a supplier being changed to that of the scammer or a payment being made straight away to the scammer.
There are a number of variations of this scam including the email coming from the supplier or from a hacked personal account. The crucial part of this is that if the staff member checked outside of the email communication the scam would have been stopped.
Our Phishing awareness training includes a special module dealing with CEO fraud and how to spot these emails. We can send a CEO fraud simulation as part of the ongoing training.
