Survey Reveals Widespread Ignorance Over Attack That Affects Most Companies

October 09, 2019 / Sarah Coble

According to a new research survey, 68% of IT security stakeholders aren't sure whether they've experienced a Pass the Hash attack, and 4% don't even know what this globally prevalent form of attack is. These almost fantastical findings, released today by One Identity, came from a survey of more than a thousand IT professionals conducted by Dimensional Research. One Identity field strategist Dan Conrad told Infosecurity Magazine: "While 4% seems like a small percentage, that means nearly one in every 20 IT security professionals does not even know about a significant cyber-attack method. "As attacks that have such a large impact on organizations, it’s imperative that the security industry continues to emphasize the importance of understanding PtH attacks and the proper methods to combat them."
