The Fraudacity of Cybercriminals

How 15.5B Recaptured Data Assets Shine a Light on the Criminal Underground

With the continued increase of individuals working, shopping, and socializing from home, we relied on digital identities more than ever in 2021. And more of that data became available to fraudsters as a result of increased breaches and malware campaigns last year.

Each year, SpyCloud summarizes the trends our team observes while recapturing data at scale from the criminal underground. In 2021, we recovered more than 15 billion assets including credentials and PII from data breaches, malware-infected device logs, and other covert sources.

The bad news: password reuse has only increased, and inexpensive malware tools have facilitated mass device infections – putting a ton of sensitive data in the hands of criminals. The good news: companies can use this recaptured data to proactively fight back and protect both their employees and consumers.

In this on-demand webinar, SpyCloud’s Vice President of Product Management, Chip Witt, breaks down our observations, including:

  • The scale of data that was stolen & circulated in 2021
  • What recaptured data reveals about online behavior and its impact on your employees and consumers
  • Why the password reuse rate is on the rise – but how it’s just one factor in elevated identity exposure
  • How data breaches and malware fuel account takeover, ransomware, and online fraud
  • Best practices to reduce fraud and improve cyber hygiene for individuals and companies
