Learn the Best Ways to Prevent Credential-based Attacks

Having strong credentials can be a solid, straightforward defense against cyberattacks and data breaches. But they are most certainly not infallible. According to Verizon’s 2019 Data Breach report, credential-based attacks make up 22% of data breaches. Following the November 2019 debut of the Disney Plus streaming service, compromised accounts showed up across the Internet for sale or even free. Security experts pointed to this high-profile incident as a glaring example of the importance of strong, complex passwords.

So how can you prevent corporate credentials from falling into the wrong hands? Ensuring strong passwords is a big part of the puzzle. If an attacker does gain entry via stolen or compromised credentials, they can reset passwords and then move about the corporate network laterally.
