Cybercrime, Cults and Confraternities: The Evolution of Nigerian 419 Email Scams


As eCrime has evolved over the past decade, Nigerian cybercriminals have evolved, too. 419 scammers or 'Yahoo Boys' running simple Nigerian prince scams have graduated to criminal confraternities conducting sophisticated business email compromise (BEC).

In this webinar we'll share CrowdStrike Intelligence outlining:

  • The techniques, tactics and procedures of these threat actors
  • How BEC affects all geographical regions, involving fraud on multiple continents
  • Steps you can take to protect your organisation
