Huge Money Losses as a Result of Criminal Crimes in Business Email Compromise (BEC) to Drive Market Growth

Email is rapidly being targeted by phishing attacks, spam, virus attacks, identity thefts, APTs, zero-day attacks, and other sophisticated attacks. Because billions of emails are sent and received every day, it is especially vulnerable to targeted data breaches. These financial ramifications are pressuring organizations to use email encryption solutions in order to adequately secure their email infrastructures. Every firm must have a solid security posture that protects against ransomware. For an effective defense against cybercriminals, robust access management, data encryption, heightened security, anomaly detection, and complete user access controls are required. As a result, it is expected that growing phishing attacks will drive the market throughout the projection period.

Top Trends in Global Business Email Compromise (BEC) Market

  • One trend that Vantage Market Research (VMR) expects to see in the business email compromise industry is the advancement of technology. In a BEC scam, attackers pretend to be trustworthy sources in order to trick their victims into delivering bogus payment information. BEC schemes include gift card theft, money redirection, and fake supplier invoices. To prevent BEC fraud, industry providers use AI/ML capabilities to analyze every email transmission. To avoid substantial financial losses, ML/AI-powered BEC detection technologies aid in recognizing and stopping email fraud assaults more quickly. Numerous firms are developing advanced solutions that are integrated with ML/AI-powered BEC solutions, which will accelerate market growth during the projection period.

  • Another trend that VMR predicts will continue in the business email compromise industry is its growing adoption of digitization techniques. With effective government regulations and digitalization initiatives, the BEC market is experiencing high-growth potential in this region. Factors such as increased internet usage, regulatory compliance, and smart device adoption are driving the adoption of BEC solutions. Cybercrime, including BEC attacks, is also on the rise in the global market.

Top Report Findings

  • The service category controls most of the business email compromise (BEC) market's revenue based on the offer. The services segment encompasses a variety of services required for enterprises to deploy, implement, and manage BEC detection solutions. Demand for these services is projected to rise as these solutions become more widely adopted. Among the services offered are phishing awareness training, simulation services, and technical support. Many providers provide BEC response services, which use advanced technology and analysis tools to analyze email assaults, saving money and getting back to business swiftly and comprehensively. Several suppliers provide services that can be swiftly installed without the need for new infrastructure or IT overhead.
  • Based on the deployment, most of the Business Email Compromise (BEC) Market's revenue is controlled by the cloud. As COVID-19 approaches, the use of cloud services is gaining traction. To remotely safeguard end users against BEC assaults, enterprises are proactively using cloud-based encrypted communication solutions. Enterprises are looking for cloud-based BEC options to help with cost-effectiveness, implementation, and access to expertise and experience for limiting advanced threats on email systems. Cloud-based BEC services feature security mechanisms such as novel phishing protection and multi-factor authentication (MFA), which are either not enabled by default or are only available at a premium, depending on the distributor. Attackers and cybercriminals have noticed this trend and are seeking ways to connect emails saved in the cloud.
  • Based on vertical, most of the Business Email Compromise (BEC) Market's revenue is controlled by BFSI market categories. Due to the frequent and substantial quantities of cash transferred between firms, BEC fraud is typical in the finance sector. Another reason they are popular in the BFSI sector is that the earnings are frequently substantially higher than traditional email phishing scams. The dangers associated with the client connection that is brought into play reflect a substantial change in how these attacks are carried out.
  • Based on the organization size, most of the business email compromise (BEC) market's revenue is controlled by large enterprises. It is expected that larger enterprises that handle a high volume of transactions and invoices will be targeted. Hackers are informed that in huge corporations, the chain of command is longer and slower. As a result, it will take longer for a single invoice to be allowed for payment and longer before it is trapped. It allows attackers plenty of time to cover their traces and effectively flee with the stolen goods.
