The evolution of business email compromise

In a new advisory article, one of our Network supporters, Marsh Commercial looks at cyber crime through business email compromise (BEC).

In a fast evolving digital world which places emphasis upon increased digital communication, there are also increased cyber security risks for family businesses through data breaches.

Marsh Commercial’s article states that “Human error caused 90% of data breaches in 2019, with staff making a variety of mistakes that put their company’s data or systems at risk”.

This sort of breach can arise from something as simple as a staff member clicking accidentally on a phishing email scam (a business email compromise), which in turn can lead to a cyber attack.

In the article from Marsh, they explain the nature of the different digital risks to family businesses and offer 5 top tips for preventing an business email compromise.
