AFTER THE DATA BREACH: STOLEN CREDENTIALS
When usernames and passwords are compromised in a data breach, the consequences extend far beyond the victim organization due to rampant password reuse. For this reason, NIST recently recommended that organizations check users’ credentials against a set of known compromised passwords. However, by patroning dark web forums and paying for spilled credentials, enterprises indirectly support the criminal ecosystem. Furthermore, attackers often don’t publicly post stolen data until months or years after the breach, if at all. Is there a better way to follow NIST guidelines and protect users from account takeover? Join Justin Richer, co-author of NIST Digital Identity Guidelines 800-63B, and Gautam Agarwal, Shape's Senior Director of Product Management, for a lively discussion on NIST’s password recommendations and how best to prevent account takeover fraud at your organization.
