Email Hijacking: How Hackers Take Over Your Email Account to Drain Your Business Bank Account
Your business is constantly under attack – it’s YOUR responsibility to protect it and your clients from cybercrime
Imagine coming back from a vacation. And discovering $12,000 had been stolen from your business bank account…
No matter what your income is, that scenario would be a total nightmare, wouldn’t it? But perhaps you’re confident that it could never happen to your business.
Unfortunately, it happens all too often and it’s not a company insider who steals the cash. Nor is it someone at the bank. And it doesn’t require anyone to steal your bank login credentials.
No, this kind of theft can be set up very easily by a hacker – and all they need is to gain access to one person’s email account.
In fact, email is the number one security threat to your business. According to IBM and the Ponemon Institute, 90% of cyber breaches are caused by human error and most often start with an email.
The days of hackers breaking into someone’s email just for fun, or to cause havoc, are long gone. These days, they are more likely to access an account and set up a hidden email forwarder. That means they can monitor all emails being sent to you.
And from there they can spot patterns. Such as a large invoice sent by a key supplier on the same date each month.
Then all they need to do is implement some clever social engineering… such as sending a fake follow-up email with “new bank details” immediately after the real invoice has been received…
This exact scenario is the subject of my new ebook on email security. And I want to give you a free copy.
