Mailbox Breaches and Banking Fraud

Mailbox Breaches and Banking Fraud

Mailbox breaches, on the surface, seem harmless enough. “It’s only my Email – right?” Well your Email is a treasure trove of confidential information, and if an attacker obtains access to it they can pretend to be you and cause all kinds of serious problems.

For example, they would have the ability to send password reset requests to your online sites, including Cloud Apps, Online Banking, Medical, Facebook, etc.... They could also use what they learn to attack people in your Email circle. We have had to address recent mailbox breaches, that cost thousands of dollars in losses, due to hackers redirecting organizations to change banking account payment and deposit information.
