Shining a Light on Identity Compromises with the Verizon Data Breach Investigations Team

As threat actors continue to expand their attack surface – with cloud systems and supply chain attacks continuing to make headlines – there are even more opportunities for threat actors to breach organizations. And the problem is not limited to the sheer volume of attacks, but the sophistication of attacks is also growing, with advanced evasive tactics making detection much more difficult. 

As threat actors continue to find new ways to capture credentials and sell them on the dark web to the highest bidder, organizations need greater visibility on threat actor tactics for credential harvesting in order to proactively protect their organization.

In this conversation, you’ll hear from Verizon DBIR lead engineer and co-author, Philippe Langlois, and Threat Intelligence expert Dylan Davis as they discuss:

  • The prevalence of leaked credentials and the growing sophistication of attacks
  • How cybercriminals steal and then monetize corporate data on the dark web
  • The connect between credential leaks and ransomware attacks
  • The impact of identity compromises on organizations large and small
  • Practical advice for reducing risk to your organization
