Business Email Compromise, or BEC, is the fastest growing segment of cybercriminal activity. While the attack vector is new, COVID-19 has brought about an increase of over 350%. Hackers are trying to take over email accounts and use the information in them to trick people into installing viruses that allow for a cybercriminal to take over a computer. The power industry is vulnerable like any other, but the stakes are higher because of the SCADA environments that these computers control. It is up to you to keep abreast of these threats so that your infrastructure stays under your control.
