Phishing and Business Email Compromise Attacks: How to protect your business from email based fraud

by Matthew Dotts

In 2017, the Internet Crime Complaint Center received 15,690 reports of Business Email Compromise victimization with an estimated adjusted loss of 675 million dollars. The loss of 675 million U.S. dollars is a mind-boggling 87% percent increase from the 360 million dollars loss reported in 2016. These email based attacks are frequently targeting small and medium businesses.

The purpose of this book is to assist the small and medium business owner in protecting their company from email born attacks. These attacks not only result in a financial loss but also destroy vital computer equipment and render electronic records useless.
