Business Scams Countermeasures Group – Founded 2016

A SCARS Sanctioned Body 2016

The Business Scams Countermeasures Group is a working group within the Society focused on the overlapping issues of relationship fraud and the exponential growth of the BEC Scams.

In fact the two are being increasingly used in concert, where the relationship scam is used to undermine the integrity of the business by targeting vulnerable individuals for the purpose of collecting information that can be used for Business Email Compromise fraud. While a favorite topic in Hollywood spy movies it is being employed in real life every day to defraud businesses of billions of dollars annually.

This working group was established to both explore the methods and develop countermeasures that can be utilized by businesses to defend against such attacks.
