Cyber Criminal Minds: Evolving BEC Attack Tactics During Shelter-in-Place

Welcome to the Proofpoint Cybersecurity eSummit. This is the first session of a three-session event. We invite you to watch the recordings of our other webinars in the attachments and links tab.

This session:

 COVID-19 impacts more than our lives. It also affects the cyber threat landscape. The Proofpoint Threat Research team has observed more and more business email compromise (BEC) and email account compromise (EAC) scams that leverage coronavirus lures. And attackers have come up with more sophisticated tactics to trick their targets into making fraudulent wire transfers.

Join Ryan Kalember, EVP of cybersecurity strategy, and Sherrod DeGrippo, senior director of threat research and detection, in this event keynote to learn more about:

  • The current state of COVID-themed BEC and EAC scams
  • New BEC tactics targeting organizations’ supply chain
  • The differences between BEC and other tactics, such as malware and credential phishing
  • Why threat actors choose a certain attack tactic and the psychology behind criminal minds
