A recent report by Trend Micro revealed that cyber attackers are able to fool CEOs the most via email schemes.

The security company’s 2017 “Midyear Security Roundup: The Cost of Compromise” report stated that while finance directors or CFOs are still the top targets, followed by other positions that handle sensitive financial information, directors and managing directors get fooled just as frequently as CEOs.  

US is still the prime target of business email compromise (BEC) attacks at 30.96%, followed by Australia and the UK. Statistics from the FBI show that BEC attacks have already caused losses estimated at $5.3 billion worldwide.
