Many thanks to Glenn Fernandes, Director of Internal Audit at the  Port of Seattle for presenting this Member's-Only Webinar

What is it about?

Business email compromise (BEC) is one of the most financially damaging online crimes. It exploits the fact that so many of us rely on email to conduct business—both personal and professional.  In a BEC scam, criminals send an email message that appears to come from a known source making a legitimate request. 

Join us in learning more about BEC, this type of fraud, and its evolution.  You will also learn how the Port of Seattle fell victim to fraud, with the fraud events dissected in an audit report, and what can be done to prevent it

When, Where, How?
