How prepared are you for a Credential Stuffing Attack?
Attackers may already have your customer passwords. Media companies now capture and store an enormous amount of data that has value on the dark web. And attackers follow the money. With the shift to a fully digital world, resulting in more online consumers, creating multiple accounts, each with their own login details, organisations and their consumers have never been more vulnerable to credential attacks.
Credential stuffing is a distinct part of the cybercrime economy, and it’s a lucrative one. As criminals continue to advance their attack methods, it is increasingly difficult to protect against them. These swift and sophisticated attacks put your revenue, productivity, and reputation at risk.
