CEO fraud is a sophisticated email scam that cybercriminals use to trick employees into transferring them money or providing them with confidential company information. Cybercriminals send savvy emails impersonating the company CEO or other company executives and ask employees, typically in HR or accounting to help them out by sending a wire transfer. Often referred to as Business Email Compromise (BEC), this cybercrime uses spoofed or compromised email accounts to trick email recipients into acting. CEO fraud is a social engineering technique that relies on winning the trust of the email recipient. The cybercriminals behind CEO fraud know that most people don’t look at email addresses very closely or notice minor differences in spelling. These emails use familiar yet urgent language and make it clear that the recipient is doing the sender a big favor by helping them out. Cybercriminals prey on the human instinct to trust one another and on the desire to want to help others. According to the last Interpol Statistic CEO Fraud is now a USD 26 Billion Scam and Growing.

An appropriate risk assessment on ethical risks, personal risks, operational risks, and the risks of collateral intrusion is going to be conducted and where the risks are significant, appropriate measures will be in place to minimize the risks. Please note if you have Cyber Insurance Policy - that's not enough, but we can help you. Our company generally will not take cases where we know we cannot do anything at all to help the client! Some reasons why our company may refuse to take specific cases are based on the specifics of the case itself. For example, there may be issues that make it difficult to prove that the facts are as the client alleges. In the private investigation, it is more about what someone can prove than what he or she knows to be true.
