CEO / CFO fraud, is where a CFO being sent a phishing email purporting to be from the CEO demanding they immediately transfer some money to a third party.

The concept of this heist is identical, albeit at a much higher level, with a lot more foundational work being put in place beforehand.

Therefore, it is not unexpected that many of the mitigation strategies would be similar in nature, these would include, better third party identification and verification process, more stringent payment authorisations, and not solely relying on email as an authority to process.
