Protecting Against Imposter Email Threats


Protect your people from impostor email threats. The latest release of Proofpoint Email Protection adds a new Impostor Email classifier to stop this emerging threat. Impostor email, also known as business email compromise (BEC) or CEO fraud, has bilked more $2.3 billion from more than 17,642 known victims so far. These threats start with an email that appears to come from a CEO or high-ranking executive. The email instructs unwitting employees to transfer money or sensitive data. The employees, eager to please their bosses, send the money—learning only later that they have been scammed.
