Incidents of the cyber threat attack form known as ‘CEO fraud’ do not fi ll as many media headlines as big brand data breaches, but the challenge they pose is signifi cant, and senior executives should certainly understand it – especially as they personally are in the fi ring line. CEO fraud resembles phishing, but

is more sophisticated in that attackers go to greater lengths to obtain information on the

‘sender’. They

assemble genuine supportive details – logos, signatures, internal codes – that lend credibility to their bogus emails. They ‘cc’ fund transfer orders to actual colleagues using false email addresses. They’ll ask payments to be made to what appear to be known suppliers or contractors – but what are really disguised bank accounts. Some 270bn emails are sent each

day. This mass of messages provides malicious online actors with limitless scope for digital deception. Cyber criminals target any c-suite offi cer with power to authorise fi nancial payments. Many organisations don’t realise the full extent of their ‘risk surface’, and should be much more concerned about the information about them that’s available on the internet. Often victims of CEO fraud are not aware that

data valuable to fraudsters

is already ‘out there’. Companies without policies in place to govern how their staff should engage with social media surprise me. Employees at all levels – including executives – are liable to reveal information about themselves and their employer

that’s valuable to cyber-fraudsters. But a richer source of ‘intelligence’ for them is social media. That’s why it is critical to know what details of your organisation are accessible from social media sites. Few organisations have the IT resources to search the Web in real-time for this purpose.
