To help financial institutions navigate the myriad business and compliance issues in the context of COVID-19, Mayer Brown is hosting a series of webinars focused on fraud and abuse and how to protect your organization against related enforcement risks. We hope you will join us for our second program in the series, “Sender Impersonation and Other Types of Business Email Compromise.”

In the remote work environment of COVID-19, companies worldwide face increased risk related to business email compromise (BEC). According to a Federal Bureau of Investigation report, in the United States, almost 24,000 BEC complaints were recorded in 2019, amounting to more than $1.7 billion in losses. With end-of-year activities and holidays approaching, businesses must be aware of recent BEC scams and proactively avoid these attacks.

During this webinar, the presenters will discuss:

  • Cross-border investigations of BEC
  • Asset recovery following these scams
  • Government and law enforcement approaches to handling BEC and related scams
  • Recent case studies
  • Training and best practices for corporations to prevent BEC
