Episode 44: Business Email Compromise

October 5, 2018 Digital Shadows

In this week’s Shadow Talk, Rafael Amado joins Michael Marriott to discuss Digital Shadows’ latest research on Business Email Compromise. We discuss how criminals are outsourcing this work, and how the exposure of 33,000 finance department credentials is increasing the ease for attackers. However, even without taking over accounts, criminals can get their hands on sensitive financial information. We dig into the 12.5 million exposed email archives that are available through misconfigured online file stores, including invoices, purchase orders, and payments. Finally, we provide advice for mitigating these risks.
