Updated 12/21/2021: Comcast is busy expanding its Gig-speed network making Gigabit speed available to many new locations including Miami Beach. Atlantic Broadband is going strong with new high-speed offerings and low prices, but coverage is still a bit limited.

Of course, at the end of the day, you will have to pick one of these three companies as your provider.

The most common attacks against business emails are phishing and ransomware. Essentially, a business email compromise (BEC) is when an attacker impersonates the actual owner of the account to steal money or sensitive information from the company.
A (BEC) attack can cause thousands of dollars in damage to a business and take a lot of time and resources to recover.
Cybercriminals are not only trying to get money but also confidential data.
Real-Life Examples of BEC
An example of a BEC attack is an email that appears to come from one of the company’s long-time employees, typically the CEO or CFO, requesting a wire transfer to a specific account. The email is usually well written, sometimes including dates, additional contact information, and contact numbers. In addition, they typically use hacked employee email accounts or email addresses that look similar to official company email.
