Exploring the Rise of Israel-Based BEC Attacks

A recent study uncovered the emergence of an Israel-based threat group with no direct ties to Nigeria that launches sophisticated, multistage BEC attacks targeting global enterprises.

While historically the origin of most business email compromise (BEC) attacks has been West Africa, residing in Nigeria certainly isn’t a requirement for BEC attackers. Indeed, the subject of this report is a sophisticated threat group based in Israel.

The group is unique in that they impersonate executives and attorneys to request huge sums of money, under the guise of an acquisition. And in some instances, they turn from email to phone call—using WhatsApp to communicate with their victim.
