2020 Report: Breach Exposure of the Fortune 1000

REPORT

2020 Report: Breach Exposure of the Fortune 1000

Preview of SpyCloud's 2020 Report: Breach Exposure of the Fortune 1000, which reveals the corporate credential exposure and ATO risks of major enterprises

Employees frequently reuse corporate credentials as personal logins, regardless of security guidelines that prohibit such behavior. When those third-party sites are subject to data breaches, reused employee logins provide easy entry points to corporate systems and networks. In addition to corporate credentials, data breaches expose a wealth of personal information that can enable cybercriminals to bypass security measures, take over accounts, and compromise enterprise networks.

To provide a snapshot of the breach exposure affecting major enterprises, we examined SpyCloud’s entire database to see what breach data we could tie to companies in the Fortune 1000. Across our data set, we were able to identify over 412 million breach assets tied to employees within the Fortune 1000.

Download the report to see:

  • How many Fortune 1000 employees and C-level executives have passwords available to cybercriminals
  • Top passwords of Fortune 1000 employees
  • Infographics showing credential exposure, password reuse rates, and more for all 21 Fortune 1000 sectors
  • Which sector is the worst offender (by far)
Solution: Account Takeover Prevention

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

Understanding the Underground Market for Stolen Credentials

Account Takeover & the Darknet

Even after the fall of the large darknet markets, such as Hansa and AlphaBay, there still exists a sophisticated underground ecosystem that thrives upon the sale and trade of stolen credentials. The fall of these markets represented a paradigm shift in how credentials are bought and sold on the underground. Phishing and spear-phishing attacks are becoming increasingly sophisticated and that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

The Rising Threat of Account Takeover

Because of widespread password reuse, Account Takeover (ATO) attacks have become an extremely lucrative business for cybercriminals. Organized crime rings are performing ATO attacks at a massive scale by leveraging botnet-infected armies to attempt credential-stuffing attacks against various web and mobile applications. Cyber criminals exploit compromised accounts for financial gain by pilfering financial or personally identifiable information (PII) directly or by selling access to these accounts on underground markets.

Download our report to understand:

  • The underground economy driving these attacks

  • Remediation strategies to prevent ATO in your organization
