Credential Stuffing Attacks: How to mitigate with Auth0
Jamie Hughes, Lead Solutions Engineer, AuthO
As a central authentication service that processes billions of logins a month, credential stuffing attacks are the most common threats we observe. These attacks can lead to fraud, loss of reputation, and ultimately, loss of revenue.
In credential stuffing attacks, threat actors use stolen credentials from one breach to takeover users’ other accounts. This is effective because 65% of people reuse passwords across multiple accounts, according to Google. On some days, these attacks originate from more than 50,000 IP addresses and may account for as much as half of all login attempts using our platform. Even the most mature companies are vulnerable if they don’t have the right preventative measures in place.
Securing the New Normal: How Cyber AI Learns on the Job
Justin Fier, Director, Cyber Intelligence & Analysis, Darktrace
The future of work remains unpredictable and uncertain. More than ever before, business leaders need to remain confident that their operations can continue securely in the face of global or even regional crises, and while sections of the economy are slowly re-opening, cyber-attackers are ramping up their campaigns.
As businesses look set to rely on cloud and SaaS tools for the long term, our digital environments are going to be more dynamic than ever. Yet organizations are finding themselves undergoing a delicate balancing act—each new work practice and technology that is introduced also brings unforeseen risk. Static, legacy approaches have become redundant, both unintelligent and ill-equipped to adapt.
Organizations must rethink their approach to security, and rely on new technologies like AI to achieve much-needed adaptability and resilience. Darktrace is the world leader in cyber AI technology, and leverages unsupervised machine learning to seamlessly adapt and integrate into changing environments, and to detect and respond to attacks in the earliest moments.
In the face of an uncertain present and future, Cyber AI enables businesses to continue communicating, operating, and innovating.
