Business Email Compromise (BEC) 3.0 involves the usage of legitimate sites, like Google, PayPal, Dropbox and more. By leveraging the trust of these sites, the emails always get into the inbox, and even advanced tools won’t detect them as illegitimate—because they are not!

By leveraging legitimate tools for illegitimate means, hackers can bypass security tools and get more
end-users to click and respond.

In this whitepaper, we’ll take a deep dive into how hackers are specifically using Google to launch these attacks. By leveraging Google tools, hackers can send out these attacks at scale, with limited chance for detection.
