Email fraud is nothing new, but online criminals have become ever more-effective at spoofing their identities to trick employees into sending them money.

This is mostly because employees are relied upon for their own password management. And with more than 4.8 billion sets of stolen credentials said to be available online, odds are that at least a few of your employees’ user IDs and passwords are just waiting to be used by unscrupulous outsiders.
