2021 Annual Credential Exposure Report

Annual Credential Exposure Report

2020 was not a typical year. Between the onset of a global pandemic, the shift to remote life, and the turbulent political landscape, consumers shifted their behavior dramatically — and criminals followed suit, swiftly finding ways to exploit these changes. 

Throughout this unusual time, SpyCloud’s researchers have been embedded in criminal networks, using human intelligence (HUMINT) to recover stolen data before it reaches a broader criminal audience or goes public. As a result, the 1.5 billion credentials and 4.6 billion PII assets we’ve recovered provide unique insight into the breaches and botnet logs that have been released to criminal communities over the last year.
