Cybersecurity Awareness 2021: #BeCyberSmart about Account Takeover Attackers

Patrick Sullivan, Vice President/Chief Technology Officer, Security Strategy, Akamai

Account takeovers (ATO) continue to rise in severity and pervasiveness, particularly in industries where digital valuables are getting created at a faster rate than physical ones.

Attackers are innovating constantly to try to increase their success rates as they work to evade detection and mitigation technologies in the kill chain. But the future isn’t just more and more attacks.

How can companies that are the intended targets for ATO innovate to learn from attacks, anticipate attackers’ next moves, and apply new techniques and detections to stop them?

You’ll gain an understanding of:

  • The underground criminal economy of stealing and selling credentials and accounts
  • Purpose-built ATO attack tools that bot operators use to target your business
  • Innovations your organization can use to change the future from one where attackers have the upper hand to one where you can fight back against the disruptive nature of account takeover
