Cybercriminals are growing more advanced. Many are well-funded, their tactics are increasingly cunning, and more and more of them use modern tools like AI to aid their efforts. So it might surprise many people to learn that one of the most successful tactics employed by cybercriminals remains credential theft. Too many organizations are leaving credentials exposed and easy for attackers to find—and once they fall into the hands of attackers, these credentials make it simple to escalate their attack and move freely throughout the network to find the most valuable data. Fortunately, many InfoSec teams have found that engaging in trickery like deception and concealment can stop credential theft in its tracks.
