Credential compromise from third-party sites
Credential compromise is an ever-growing concern for organizations nowadays. The volume of exposed corporate credentials has nearly tripled between 2016 and 2017 according to a recent report, which also claimed that nearly 77% of the Financial Times Stock Exchange 100 were exposed with an average of 218 stolen credentials per organization in a 3-month span. All organizations need to have a framework and policy in place for the proper use of corporate email addresses which should include best practices, do’s, and don'ts. Employees should be made aware of the risks of reusing business email and passwords for non-work related purposes.
