Account Takeover 101

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 organisation 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 organisation 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 behaviour, 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 using their work credentials. When these services are breached, your organisation is at risk. 

Watch this on-demand webinar with 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.
