BEC/FBI Tech Hacking Advisory – Doing Business with Foreign Suppliers/Businesses

It was not so long ago that in the cyberspace realm businesses only needed to worry about having a good firewall and spam filter to prevent fraud.  Now, as technology has advanced so have the fraudsters and the government is warning businesses, especially those conducting business with foreign suppliers and/or businesses, of a new and escalating scam called the Business Email Compromise, the BEC.   Earlier this year, the FBI issued its first public service announcement (“PSA-Alert”)about the BEC, out of its Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3).  Then, in August 2015, the FBI updated the BEC PSA-Alert in order to further warn businesses and to provide up-to-date statistics.  The statistics published show that between October 2013 to August 2015 there have been more than 7,000 U.S. victims with losses estimated close to $750 million.  Worldwide, the BEC losses are estimated at more than $1.2 billion.

The Securities and Exchange Commission said R.T. Jones Capital Equities Management did not even encrypt its customers’ data or install a firewall on its servers, and the hack compromised the personal details of about 100,000 people. No customer has reported suffering any financial harm as a result of the attack, the SEC added. Neither an attorney nor a representative for the firm could be reached for comment. R.T. Jones is a relatively small advisory firm, with only about $481 million in assets under management as of June, according to a filing with the SEC. But the cyber security concerns at issue in the case, as well as the origin of the attack, are likely to generate attention. In recent years, high-profile companies including Target Corp and JPMorgan Chase & Co have been hit in hack attacks. In some cases, Chinese hackers have been implicated in various cyber crimes, including a major breach at the U.S. Office of Personnel Management disclosed earlier this […]
