Find out how your company can become less vulnerable to attack today and in the future.

Social Engineering and Business Email Compromise

Just like your personal email account, your company email system is a popular vehicle for cyber attackers. Social engineering is a form of manipulation in which an attacker builds trust with a vulnerable target, so they'll give up important information. Business email compromise (BEC) is a scam that relies on common social engineering tactics to trick a target into giving an attacker what they want. To achieve their goals, a cybercriminal may employ any of the following methods:

  • Impersonate your CEO: Pretending to be the company CEO is one way cybercriminals influence employees to send money, make purchases, and more. 
  • Steal company data: Acquiring sensitive information, such as phone numbers or account statements, which can be used for nefarious purposes is a common BEC scam attempt.
  • Send fake invoices: By pretending to be one of the company's vendors, cybercriminals try to request payment for services that will be transferred to a bogus account.
  • Masquerade as an attorney: These attackers impersonate legal representatives to take advantage of low-level employees likely to comply at a company or clients at a law firm who may pay an invoice for legal services. 
  • Gain email account access: Taking advantage of a compromised company email address gives an attacker the power to request payments to a fraudulent account and perform other disreputable tasks.

Common Email Security Risks for Businesses

We know how important it is to stay up-to-date on the latest security threats. Cybercriminals use several methods for running BEC scams, but innovative IT services are available from Tekie Geek to stop them in their tracks. Some of the most common email security risks include the following:

Email Spoofing

Spoofing is when an attacker creates a fake email account that looks almost identical to a real one to fool a target into thinking they're communicating with a coworker or boss. This fake email address usually varies slightly from an authentic one ( vs. This manipulation is designed to trick email recipients into opening, interacting with, or responding to a message.

Email Phishing

A form of identity theft or fraud, phishing typically occurs through email. Many attackers find it easier to get an unsuspecting target to click a malicious link in an email that looks authentic than it is to hack into a company's network. Using this method, scammers make themselves appear as though they represent a real firm so an unwary user may be tricked into giving up personal information, such as:

  • Usernames
  • Passwords
  • Credit card details
  • Social Security numbers

Using public information, scammers can gather insights into a person's job title, work history, social network, and other insights to make their email look as genuine as possible. 

Malware Distribution

Commonly circulated via infected emails, malware is malicious software. This software is designed to help its creator make money or gain power over its target in one form or another. Some of the most popular types of malware include computer viruses, ransomware, and spyware.
