No matter how much you think you’ve done to safeguard your data and systems against breaches, common vulnerabilities continue to wreak havoc on enterprises. The top of the list of these vulnerabilities is weak passwords. According to a 2019 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report (DBIR), 80% of hacking-related breaches involved compromised and weak credentials.
Attackers are finding quick access to enterprise domain admins by simply guessing a password and logging in as that domain admin, giving them a foothold and control over your entire infrastructure.
Given these challenges, what can you do to shore up your passwords and protect your organization? Join CRITICALSTART’s TEAMARES security experts, Cory Mathews and Joffrin Alexander, as they present, “Exploiting Enterprise Passwords”.
From phishing pages to password spraying, you’ll learn how attackers gain access to passwords and what they do with those passwords once they’ve cracked them, as well as:
- Methods to defend against these attacks specifically focusing on using strong passwords, password manager solutions, and probably most importantly multi-factor authentication.
- External attacks such as logging in to enterprise solutions such as OWA, VPN, and file shares to maliciously changing passwords to lockout user’s access – and what you can do to prevent these attacks.
- Proactive defense strategies including how to ensure you’re using strong passwords and how multi-factor can prevent breaches.
- Internal actions you can take such as limiting excessive admin rights and other preventative measures.
