Business email compromise and payment fraud webinar

This webinar has now taken place, but please complete our form if you would like to be sent a copy of the recording.


While ransomware gets all the headlines, business email compromise is still the single biggest cybersecurity threat for businesses. The FBI reports that losses from business email compromise and payment fraud in 2021 were around 48 times higher than from ransomware. So it is critical that businesses understand how to protect themselves against business email compromise and how to respond to an incident.

Kennedys has handled scores of business email compromise incidents. In this webinar, Partners Nicholas Blackmore and Joanie Ko will draw on that experience to discuss current trends in business email compromise incidents and look at the legal and regulatory aspects of responding to an incident, including breach notification requirements and disputes about misdirected payments.

1 CPD point has been applied for and, if approved, will be accredited by The Law Society of Hong Kong.
