The Adventure of the Billionaire's Wire Transfer and Other BEC Stories 

Summary - Business Email Compromise (BEC) attacks have become pervasive over the past 5-7 years. According to an Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) report released in May 2022, global financial losses associated with BEC exceeded $43 billion between June 2016 and December 2021, and recent declines in global ransomware activity could indicate further increases in BEC. This presentation will help prepare investigators for BEC incidents. Learning objectives include: 

  • Understanding three common adversary TTPs associated with BEC incidents. 

  • Understanding a general approach to investigating BEC incidents. 

  • Understanding methods to quickly analyze activity logs and malicious inbox rules in Microsoft 365.
