Shining a Light Intothe Dark Web

How Stolen Data is Used to Commit Fraud

Access to loyalty and travel accounts are hot commodities on the criminal underground. But so are packages of consumers’ PII that are used to create new accounts and construct synthetic identities. During this session, we share the latest trends from criminal marketplaces and explain how stolen data makes its way from small circles of bad actors to the dark web – plus how to identify legitimate consumers interacting with your site vs. criminals leveraging stolen data.

Here’s what you’ll learn:

  • Dark web listings for loyalty and travel accounts: how much are they going for and how is that data being used?
  • The scale of leaked consumer PII that aids criminals committing fraud.
  • How and why malware – in particular malware-siphoned web session cookies – presents the riskiest threat for fraud teams right now.
  • Why recaptured darknet data is being used by fraud prevention teams to level the playing field.

Mind the Gap: Closing Ransomware Risk Visibility Gaps

WEBINAR

Mind the Gap: Closing Ransomware Risk Visibility Gaps

Our annual survey of security leaders and practitioners revealed that 90% of organizations were affected by ransomware over the past 12 months, despite 86% of enterprise customers increasing security budgets to fight it.

This indicates that security teams have very little confidence in their defenses. Where are the gaps in ransomware defense and how can you proactively address them? Turns out, the riskiest ransomware entry points are ones that security teams lack visibility into – including malware on unmanaged devices accessing the network, compromised third-party applications, and stolen cookies used for session hijacking of SSO instances.

Devices infected with malware, for example, create one of the biggest exposures to ransomware, and without visibility into those devices and into the resulting accounts compromised through malware-siphoned data, organizations don’t have the complete picture of their risk.

We break down the critical findings from our 2022 Ransomware Defense Report so you can:

  • Benchmark your security posture against organizations like yours
  • Pinpoint gaps in your defenses
  • Discover proactive strategies to solve ransomware defense blindspots
  • Hear first-hand insights on the fight against criminal malware rings from a former Special Agent and member of the FBI Cyber Task Force

The SpyCloud Difference

Stolen credentials – obtained through breaches and malware-infected devices – are a criminal’s all-access pass to your systems. So take them out of the equation. SpyCloud offers early detection and continuous visibility of exposed credentials and negates this threat vector immediately. The effort and cost of recovery from ransomware (not to mention the negative press attention) far outweigh the effort and cost associated with proactive prevention.

SpyCloud acts as a ransomware “early warning system” for hundreds of global enterprises, including half of the Fortune 10.

2022 Ransomware Defense Report

REPORT

The SpyCloud Ransomware Defense Report 2022

An annual benchmark of organizations’ preparedness and strategies to close the gaps

2022 Ransomware Defense Report Preview

Our annual survey of 300+ security leaders in the US, Canada, and UK revealed that despite 86% increasing budget to protect against ransomware, 90% of organizations reported being affected by ransomware in the last 12 months – leaving security teams with little confidence in their defenses.

But there is hope. With credentials at the forefront of protecting employee identities, we were intrigued to find multi-factor authentication (MFA) in use at almost all organizations and that monitoring for compromised credentials saw a significant increase year-over-year, from 44% to 73%. And with the increased severity and frequency of malware infections, a majority of respondents agree that credential-stealing malware – especially on unmanaged devices accessing the network – is a growing concern as a hard-to-detect entry point for ransomware.

The 2022 SpyCloud Ransomware Defense Report benchmarks the challenges and proactive approaches to fighting against ransomware. Download the report to:

  • Benchmark your preparedness measures
  • Assess the challenges of third-party risk and the increased severity of malware and data breaches
  • Understand the vulnerabilities created by the riskiest entry points for ransomware

The state of current & future ransomware capabilities
Ransomware Defense Report Preview

We surveyed enterprises and found that they aren’t exactly optimistic about ransomware. They told us that phishing emails and compromised credentials are their riskiest entry points, and yet the majority of organizations lack some basic measures to shore up passwords and authentication.

But it’s not all bad news. Our data shows that organizations are doing many of the right things and moving in the right direction to fight back.

The Ransomware/Stolen Credentials Connection

The Ransomware/Stolen Credentials Connection

ransomware-stolen-credentials-webinar

Ransomware attacks are on the rise, and no industry or company is off-limits. For criminals, it’s a short and clear path from obtaining a stolen account credential to penetrating a network and demanding millions in ransom. For victims, the result is massive business disruption, negative press, brand damage, and an expensive, time-consuming remediation process.

But ransomware only works if cybercriminals have access to your network. The majority of these attacks stem from stolen credentials, and taking back control starts with proactive measures to negate their value.

In this on-demand webinar, we break down the ransomware ecosystem, adversary groups’ latest tactics, and strategies to mitigate your risk and avoid paying millions to ransomware gangs.

You’ll learn:

  • How ransomware operators select their targets and work with other players in the ecosystem to efficiently exploit vulnerabilities
  • Common entry points to corporate networks and the order of operations for attacks, including where stolen credentials come into play
  • Necessary proactive defenses that reduce the risk of attacks while negating bad habits like password reuse

There’s no room for error when it comes to ransomware. This webinar demystifies these insidious attacks and shows you how to reduce your exposure.

Targeted vs. Automated Account Takeover Attacks

WHITEPAPER

Targeted vs. Automated
Account Takeover Attacks

Account takeover (ATO) occurs when criminals use stolen logins to access user accounts without permission–typically credentials that have been exposed in a third-party breach. Using victims’ accounts, criminals can make fraudulent purchases, drain accounts, steal sensitive data, or move laterally within a target organization.

The vast majority of account takeover attempts are automated credential-stuffing attacks. However, SpyCloud customers report that 80 percent of losses come from just 10 percent of ATO attempts, which are highly targeted and challenging to detect.

Read this whitepaper to learn:

  • The differences between targeted and automated account takeover attacks and why targeted attacks can cause so much damage
  • The five phases of an account takeover attack and the tactics, techniques, and procedures cybercriminals throughout the attack timeline
  • How early detection can help you prevent both targeted and automated account takeover
Solution: Account Takeover Prevention

Reset stolen passwords before criminals can use them to defraud your users or access sensitive corporate data.
