Securing Financial Transactions
October 18, 2023, 3:00 – 4:00 p.m. EST
Reg Harnish, CEO, OrbitalFire

Register in advance for this meeting here.

According to 2022 statistics, Business Email Compromise (BEC) – not ransomware – is the number one cyber scam affecting small businesses today. According to the Federal Bureau of Investigations, it has resulted in more losses than any other type of computer fraud in the U.S. Business Email Compromise can result in fraudulent wire transfers, direct deposit issues, vendor payment scams, and many other types of financial losses.

Typically, Business Email Compromise is made possible due to poorly trained employees, inadequate financial procedures, and a lack of security controls on financial transactions. In some cases, these attacks are combined with other, more sophisticated intrusions. The good news – implementing some basic operational changes can nearly eliminate your susceptibility to these scams. Join OrbitalFire as we explore this new pandemic of cybercrime and ways you can reduce your risk today.
