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.

2022 Report: Identity Exposure of London’s FTSE 100

REPORT

2022 Report: Identity Exposure of London's FTSE 100

(And Their Subsidiaries)

Graphic of SpyCloud's 2022 FTSE Identity Exposure Report

As data breaches and malware infections continue to leak employees’ credentials and PII at a massive scale, their password reuse remains critically high, creating significant security risks for organisations and the consumers who rely on them to keep their data safe. 

A single set of employee credentials that have been exposed in a third-party breach can leave the door wide open for bad actors to gain entry into a corporate network – but we found that London’s FTSE 100 and their subsidiaries have 2.7 million pairs of exposed plaintext credentials in the criminal underground.

To provide a snapshot of employee identity exposures affecting major enterprises, SpyCloud analyzed the data we’ve recaptured from breaches, malware-infected devices, and other underground sources tied to FTSE 100 and subsidiary employees. We examined over 51 million assets, all of which are available on the criminal underground and can be used for malicious purposes.

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.

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.

What it is, how it happens, and how to prevent it

Identity Theft 101

Identity theft means that your personal and confidential information has been stolen and is being used without your permission to apply for lines of credit, make purchases, and commit other types of fraud.

Identity theft is skyrocketing worldwide, fueled by so many tactics that even security professionals can’t keep up. 

Are you a target? The short answer is yes. Everyone’s personal data is worth something to fraudsters.

SpyCloud worked with the Communications Fraud Control Association (CFCA) to create Identity Theft 101, a consumer education document that describes:

U.S. Government Credential Exposure Report

2021 SPECIAL REPORT

U.S. Government Credential Exposure

There is arguably no bigger producer, collector, consumer, and disseminator of data on the planet than the United States government. And yet, SpyCloud analysis has shown that its vast network of employees at the federal, state and local levels, including its contractors, are leaving that data exposed to enormous risk.

In 2020 alone, SpyCloud found:

    • 269,690 plaintext government credentials leaked in 465 breaches.
    • More than 1 million pairs of exposed emails and passwords for corporate accounts at the 27 largest companies in the defense industrial base.
    • 800,000 exposed corporate credentials (more than 7,000 per company) for employees at the 109 Fortune 1000 companies in the energy sector.

These exposures provide potential avenues for bad actors to access government resources and create massive risk in the government supply chain.

As this report explains, the prevalence of password reuse and loose credential security protocols are gifts to cybercriminals that expose the U.S. to significant risks. Our “Special Report: 2021 U.S. Government Credential Exposure” provides the prescriptive guidance needed to address this trend, along with a new framework for securing credentials that applies to employees, suppliers, and citizens.

Solution: Account Takeover Prevention

Detect and automatically reset exposed credentials before criminals can exploit them to perpetrate targeted attacks like ransomware.

SpyCloud provides the earliest detection of potentially compromised accounts – those using credentials that have appeared in a third-party breach or were siphoned from a malware infection and are therefore at risk of account takeover. And we automate the remediation of exposed passwords, enabling government agencies to lock down accounts quickly, without the need for additional resources. 

Our goal is to help organizations to protect themselves from criminal activity and disrupt criminals’ ability to profit from stolen data.

Business Email Compromise 101

WHITEPAPER

Business Email Compromise 101

BEC Remains A Persistent Threat For One Big Reason
– It’s Still Really Effective

bec-101-whitepaper

According to the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3), losses from BEC surpassed $1.8 billion in 2020 – an average of $93,000 per incident.

BEC is challenging to prevent, especially when vendors are compromised, but SpyCloud believes prevention begins with addressing the human attack surface, particularly the prevalence of poor password hygiene. When passwords are reused between employees’ or vendors’ work and personal accounts, credentials that have already been exposed in a data breach are fair game for use in BEC campaigns.

This report examines the very human problem of password reuse and the social engineering tactics used by criminals to dupe organizations. As this report explains, all it takes to steal from your business is a single compromised account.

Solution: Account Takeover Prevention

Detect and automatically reset exposed credentials before criminals can exploit them to bypass MFA and take over accounts.
