The CISO Meetup

Account Takeovers Targeting the Middle East

In this talk, we closely examine the ubiquitous problem of account takeover (ATO). Using the Digital Shadows SearchLight service, which maintains a database of breached credentials and scours criminal forums for attackers’ trends, data dumps, advertisements and tools.

Attendees will gain insight into the types of industries with high numbers of exposed credentials, the price of credentials across dark web marketplaces, the targeting of Middle Eastern companies, and the most popular tools used by attackers.

The talk will go on to further discuss how exposed credentials relate to issues such as spoof domains, infrastructure weaknesses, and other forms of online exposure.
