Targeted Attacks: How Sophisticated Criminals Bypass Enterprise Security Measures
SpyCloud + ISMG
For close to three years, a technology executive was hounded by a persistent attacker who stole his identity, opened credit cards in his name, and wired funds from his bank account. Though SpyCloud helped bring this particular criminal to justice, these tactics are common in targeted attacks.
If your account takeover prevention program primarily focuses on automated attacks like credential stuffing and password spraying, you may be leaving your organization exposed to serious losses. Targeted account takeover attacks are manual, creative, and elusive, making them one of the most difficult aspects of security and risk management. When criminals decide to go after high-value individuals and organizations, they’re motivated to pull out all the stops, engaging in time-intensive, difficult to perpetrate methodologies in pursuit of lucrative rewards.
Dig into the tactics, techniques, and procedures criminals use to perpetrate highly-targeted attacks and identify areas where you might be investing unwisely in security technologies, leaving you vulnerable to sophisticated attackers.
