SpyCloud 2021 Report: Breach Exposure of the Fortune 1000

Password reuse is a leading cause of account takeover, and it’s an issue for security teams everywhere. Data breaches plague every enterprise, including America’s most successful businesses; but even employees who practice good password hygiene may put their employers at risk when third-party data breaches expose personal data that can be used against them.

To highlight the scope of the problem, SpyCloud analyzed breach data tied to employees of Fortune 1000 companies. For this analysis, we examined over 107 million Fortune 1000 employee breach records containing more than 543 million assets, all of which are available to cybercriminals and can be used for malicious purposes.
