Identity Threat Roundup Q2 2022
Given how valuable AD is, and the role it plays in provisioning, connecting and controlling identity access for nearly 90% of the Fortune 1000, it comes as no surprise that attackers are constantly attempting to identify and leverage misconfigurations and unpatched vulnerabilities. Their goal? To make inroads into enterprise networks until they can lay hands on sensitive information for cyberespionage or to extort their victims and demand a ransom.
The Q2 Identity Threat Roundup takes a close look at how BlackCat ransomware affiliates are targeting unpatched Microsoft Exchange security flaws, the Conti ransomware attack on Costa Rica, and the General Motors cyberattack. We also shine the spotlight on how the public sector can protect itself from ransomware attacks. We close this report with our key identity takeaways from the last quarter.
