Among various types of business email compromise (BEC) and email account compromise (EAC) attacks, supply chain fraud often accounts for the biggest financial losses. These types of threats leverage both impersonation and account compromise and are often used jointly in the same attack. So how can you better protect your company and your end users?

Join our experts for a webinar on how to identify and gain visibility to these cyber threats to reduce your supply chain risk.

In this session we'll talk about:
• The BEC/EAC variants
• Real life examples of supply chain fraud attacks
• How to address email scams from supply chain
