Agari Announces New Webinar on Business Email Compromise: Scamming the Scammers

Email Security Expert John Wilson to Discuss Lessons Learned from His Interactions with Email Scammers

SAN MATEO, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 12, 2017) - Agari, a leading cybersecurity company, today announced its Scamming the Scammers - Turning the Tables on Business Email Compromise webinar on April 19th at 9 a.m. PT. During this hour-long webinar, John Wilson, email security expert and field CTO for Agari, will discuss how he fights back against email scammers, using their own tools, services, and identity tricks of the trade.

Business Email Compromise (BEC), also known as CEO fraud, is a sophisticated email attack in which a cybercriminal sends targeted emails to an organization's employees. The last few years have seen a dramatic upswing in BEC attacks, fueled by the tremendous profits these attacks generate. According to the FBI, losses from BEC attacks have spiraled out of control, increasing by 1300 percent in the last 18 months.

Webinar attendees will learn why BEC attacks bypass existing email security layers, as well as the top three ways to spot the identity deception that enables these attacks. In addition, Wilson will provide best practices to prevent organizations from being a victim of these types of targeted email attacks.
