2101737 - Emerging threats against cloud application identities and what you should do about it

Oct 12, 2022 11:25am ‐ Oct 12, 2022 12:25pm


Many organizations have been laser-focused on user account security to defend against the increase in password spray and phishing attacks, implementing measures such as MFA and even moving to passwordless authentication. But recent cyber attacks show that adversaries are turning their attention toward application identities. Do you know what risky behavior your application identities are up to and how to protect them? Just as with user accounts, organizations will need to address application identities that are compromised through a compromised administrator, credentials-in-code or a malicious application pretending to be legitimate. In this session, learn about attacks against application identities -- how to detect these attacks as well as how to recover and defend application identities going forward against these emerging threats.

Learning Objectives:
  • Detect attacks against application identities.
  • Respond to application identity compromise incidents.
  • Take proactive steps to prevent application identity compromise.
