Breaking the Attack Chain by Unmasking Account Compromise

Available On-Demand

Recorded live on 13 July 2023

In 2022, 62% of organizations experienced malicious email or cloud account compromise,1 a serious threat costing companies millions of dollars each year. While account compromise usually begins with exposed credentials, it’s often the first step in a much larger attack chain. Once an attacker gains access to an account, they work to increase their privilege and establish persistence. This may result in malware infection, data exfiltration, and your accounts being used to target others.

Account compromise is not only a top CISO concern, it’s also a difficult problem to solve. Defenders must address both account takeovers that occur within the organization and those that come from trusted business partners. With the threat of compromise coming from every direction and steadily growing, how do you keep your accounts secure?
