Prevent Account Takeover

Account Takeover Attacks are on the Risk

Account takeovers are unbelievably common. 60% of account takeover victims reuse passwords across multiple accounts providing attackers many opportunities to compromise different services. Even if one of your customers personal accounts is compromised, they may reuse the same password on business accounts which could be put up for sale on the dark web.

Furthermore, account takeover attacks can be some of the most damaging. In many cases it can take an organization weeks or even months to identify a compromised account, by which time data may have been exfiltrated, ransomware distributed, or other malicious actions taken.

There are two major causes behind data leaks involving your company’s processes and plans, as well as employee and customer personal and financial information. 

First, malicious actors are actively stealing this data to resell it for profit on illicit markets. Second, the data can be leaked following human errors by employees and partners. The remote workforce has increased the use of cloud-based collaborative tools that employees use to create accounts and store data without your knowledge. Data access rights are usually not managed by security teams which may lead to leaks

The ProbleM

Preventing Account Takeover

Preventing account takeover attacks can be difficult. Despite many companies implementing more and more strict password policies, customers’ accounts are often hacked. Even if your customers have top-tier cybersecurity programs and 24/7 monitoring, an unauthorized user with the right credentials can still cause a data breach or ransomware attack.
