The Business Email Compromise is an exploit in which the attacker gains access to a corporate email account and spoofs it to defraud the company or its employees, customers or partners for money. Email fraud has been quietly costing organizations around the globe billions of dollars every year.

Security shortfalls of Outlook

  • In Microsoft Outlook you can’t see email addresses in the reading pane, this “feature” of hiding email addresses possesses a great threat and risk of probable phishing attacks 
  • It makes it difficult to identify the difference between the work email address and the occasional missent message from a home email address.
  • It makes it difficult to tell that mail is auto-generated on behalf of a person, rather than coming from the person themselves.
  • When someone forwards a message, very often the forwarded email address won’t show at all, just “Saju S “

Even after the implementation of SPF, DKIM, DMARC probability is that you may still receive Spoofed Emails. To help you and your organization to be one step ahead of this multi-billion-dollar threat here’s IARM simple solution called SPOOF WATCH
