Free BEC Seminars from FBI & USSS 0 D. Lindholm Dear Colleagues: With permission of InfraGard/FBI, I’m forwarding this notice regarding free briefings from the FBI & Secret Service (and others) in cities around the country. A few of the dates have passed, but some may still be available in useful locations to you and your organization. BEC is huge and growing, targeting law firms, financial institutions, businesses of all types and sizes… Having attended last year’s (smaller-scale) briefing at the Washington Field Office, this was a worthy event with the latest information on techniques used and advice to combat it. Best regards, Danielle Camner LINDHOLM Managing Director Roaring Fork Strategies danielle@roaringforkstrategies.com (ACFCS DC Chapter Board) -------- Original message -------- From: infragardteam@ignconnect.org Date: 10/19/17 5:49 PM (GMT-05:00) To: dcamner@hotmail.com Subject: Business Email Compromise Workshop   Attention InfraGard member,                 You have received a new broadcast message. Business Email Compromise (BEC) has become a significant threat to U.S. businesses and individuals. Since October 2013, the Federal Bureau of Investigation has identified victims from 131 countries and a global monetary exposure of over $5 billion dollars as a result of BEC fraud. Business leaders, please plan to join us for this important opportunity to learn about a very real & proliferating cybersecurity threat. Cybersecurity experts from the FBI, US Secret Service and private sector will be sharing their experiences & expertise around BEC, why you should be concerned and how you can protect against becoming the next victim.
