Business Email Compromise (BEC) Checklist

email compromise

MSI has recently received requests from a variety of sources for guidance around the configuration and management of business e-mail, in particular the preponderance of business email compromise (BEC). Phishing attacks increased almost 500% in the previous year, as reported by Proofpoint.

In response, our CEO Brent Huston has created a Business Email Compromise (BEC) checklist (link is below) that:

  • Enumerates attack vectors
  • Briefly reviews impacts
  • Lists control suggestions mapped back to the NIST framework model

This is a must read for Security and IT practitioners as it helps to make sure you have your bases covered!
