With the continued onslaught of data breaches and malware infections, account takeover and online fraud are serious security threats facing enterprises every day. Add to it employees’ bad habit of using weak and reused passwords, and that creates the perfect opportunity for malicious actors to take advantage.

To highlight the scope of the problem, SpyCloud analyzed the exposed data tied to employees of Fortune 1000 organizations in our database. For this analysis, we examined over 126 million Fortune 1000 employee breach records containing more than 687 million assets, all of which are available to cybercriminals and can be used for malicious purposes.
