by Alexander Heid,

Summary : The year 2020 has disclosed an unprecedented amount of compromised data sets, most of which were made freely available to the public within the hacker underground. It is reported that over one trillion sets of usernames, email addresses, and passwords have been released and are leveraged by hacking crews for various malicious purposes. These breaches go as far back as ten years, and include household names, obscure companies, and even underground hacker resources.Furthermore, advanced toolkits from nation-states are now public domain, whereby any script kiddie can become a shadow government hacking master. Where do these breaches come from? How did they originate? Why did it sometimes take years to discover? What have attackers been doing with the data? What can attackers still do with this data? What can companies and individuals do to protect themselves and each other during these floods of hacked data sets? How dramatically has this shifted the cyber risk landscape? This talk will explore these questions, and discuss ways for enterprises to avoid succumbing to these trending attacks.
