Undetected invoice and payment fraud can have expensive consequences

Your Accounts Payable department is a priority target for many attackers due to the financial power they hold.

Attackers will often send random invoices through in the hope they'll be paid without second thought, but more frequently they'll socially engineer the victim to make the phish seem legitimate.

Unfortunately, they’re often successful.
