Learn the Best Ways to Prevent Credential-based Attacks
During this editorial webcast, experts from Redmond magazine will discuss methods to best prevent credential-based attacks. One of the best prevention methods you’ll learn more about is using strong multi-factor authentication. Other prevention methods include:
- Blacklisting leaked passwords
- Securing self-service functions
- Using common password dictionaries
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.

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. However no matter how strong a password if it’s been leaked, an attacker can gain entry and either take over an account by resetting the password or try to fly under the radar as they move about the corporate network laterally.
