Account Takeover 101

April 14, 2020  |  10:00 am PT  | 1:00 pm ET


The reuse of corporate credentials has been the #1 attack tactic for the last 3-4 years, and with everything else to worry about, protecting your organization from breaches and account takeovers (ATO) has never been a bigger challenge. New tools make it possible for even unsophisticated actors to perform advanced, widespread attacks that put your organization at risk. Regardless of the thoughtful measures and policies you have in place, from threat detection to password managers, nothing can protect you from human behavior, and that is the weakest link when it comes to ATO. Your employees may be reusing compromised passwords to access corporate systems or signing up for 3rd party services like LinkedIn or Fantasy Football using their work credentials. When these services are breached, your organization is at risk. 

Join Arctic Wolf and SpyCloud as they shine a light on how ATO happens—the attack timeline and the surprisingly unsophisticated criminal tactics bad actors are using today—and how to defend your enterprise despite employee and consumer bad password hygiene.
