The CEO Fraud, also known as Business Email Compromise (BEC), is a scam where the cybercriminal impersonates the identity of an internal person in an organization. This way, a criminal impersonating the CEO for example, can make requests to the users of their organization by email, with the ultimate objective of making wire transfers, spreading a Ransomware attack, or stealing credentials, among others.

An incorrect configuration of your organization’s email server can allow a cybercriminal to use it to send internal emails impersonating anyone in your organization and skipping security SPAM filters or SPF, DKIM, and DMARC records.

Non-intrusive tests on your domain will be conducted. If you wish, you can enter your email server port number to run the test; otherwise, the default port of the operating system will be used.
