Supply Chain Attacks: Defending Against Vendor Email Compromise
Vendor email compromise (VEC) is a significant security threat to organizations. According to research from Abnormal Security, the percentage of companies who received a VEC attack increased 156% from July 2020 to June 2021, as threat actors increasingly see communications between vendors and customers as the weakest link.

It’s clear traditional email defenses were not designed to stop socially-engineered attacks. Without a new approach, high-profile attacks such as SolarWinds and Colonial Pipeline, will continue to cause severe financial losses and reputational damage. So, how can you avoid being the next victim?

Discussion topics will include:

  • Recommendations to achieve supply chain visibility
  • Techniques to detect compromises within the supply chain
  • New approaches to mitigate the risk associated with VEC


Join ISMG’s Jeremy Kirk for a moderated discussion that will feature insight from Mike Britton, CISO at Abnormal Security.
