How Law Firms Should Mitigate the Risk of Business Email Compromise

Join Western Union Business Solutions as they help you understand about business email compromise and how you can potentially mitigate the risk to your company.

In a changing world where businesses and their employees have grown used to working from home is it any wonder that business email compromise remains the overriding cybercrime?

In sectors such as legal where colleagues have previously relied on each other for advice in the office, new working arrangements rely heavily on employees sticking to processes and procedures. Unfortunately, many businesses continue to fall short, and far too often lone employees are at the mercy of fraudsters who are experts in social engineering and cyber-skills.

To help you understand further about business email compromise and how you can potentially mitigate the risk to your company please join us at our conference where Alex Beavan will be presenting on Business Email Compromise. During the conference he will go through all the red flags associated with this fraud and show in detail how to mitigate the risk. He will also explain the different typologies and methodologies used by the fraudsters and go through some case studies and take any questions to help you with your continued professional development
