Since the traditional network perimeter has disappeared, network defense increasingly relies upon authenticated access to resources as a primary security control. Unfortunately, attackers have become extremely proficient at stealing and reusing credentials of all types, resulting in stealthy attacks that blend in with normal network activity. This talk will explain how these attacks are possible on premise, in the cloud, and across the Internet with a goal of understanding how to prevent and detect them in your environment.
