2020 Report: Breach Exposure of the Fortune 1000

Preview of SpyCloud's 2020 Report: Breach Exposure of the Fortune 1000, which reveals the corporate credential exposure and ATO risks of major enterprises

Employees frequently reuse corporate credentials as personal logins, regardless of security guidelines that prohibit such behavior. When those third-party sites are subject to data breaches, reused employee logins provide easy entry points to corporate systems and networks. In addition to corporate credentials, data breaches expose a wealth of personal information that can enable cybercriminals to bypass security measures, take over accounts, and compromise enterprise networks.

To provide a snapshot of the breach exposure affecting major enterprises, we examined SpyCloud’s entire database to see what breach data we could tie to companies in the Fortune 1000. Across our data set, we were able to identify over 412 million breach assets tied to employees within the Fortune 1000.
