Course Overview
Hey, everyone. I'm Tyler Hudak, and I'm a professional incident responder that has worked dozens of investigations, including business email compromises. And I'm Aaron Rosenmund, a full‑time author and security researcher with Pluralsight, with a broad experience in both defensive and offensive cybersecurity. Business email compromises, while not technically malware, still revolve around live criminal actors leveraging technology to steal organizations' information and money. This is a big problem, which can affect any company. Reported losses are over one billion a year and, as with most other types of cybercrime, are still rising. Though it's not typical malware and it is more frequently taking place solely in the cloud email environments, but that's exactly what makes it so dangerous and effective. Fortunately, there are a number of ways that organizations can prevent, detect, and respond to business email compromise. I hope you'll join us for this course on Business Email Compromise on Pluralsight
