Business Email Compromise (BEC)

Business email compromise (BEC) is an exploit in which the attacker gains access to a corporate email account and
spoofs/assumes the owner’s identity to defraud the company or its employees, customers or partners of money. In some cases, an
attacker simply creates an account with an email address that is very similar to one on the corporate network. BEC are also referred
to as man-in-the email attacks.
