The Geopolitical Tensions Disrupting the Lateral Movement Equation

In the face of ongoing geopolitical tensions, there is a significant risk that Australian firms could be caught up as collateral damage. The current mayhem also increases the attack surface by providing cybercriminals an opportunity to carry out attacks they may not otherwise get away with. In times of crisis, it is common to see identity-based attacks, lateral movement, and ransomware propagation on the rise. Despite investments, the exploitation of credentials and basic MFA implementations remains a blind spot for today’s security stacks. Every organisation must act with extreme urgency to address any security gaps and accelerate the improvement of its security posture.

Join this session with Silverfort and Jonathan as they provide a live view into both the attacker and the defender's perspective of identity threats and demonstrate:

  • How organisations are leveraging their platform to test assumptions and identify blind spots in their security programs
  • How an attacker who has obtained admin credentials can use those to gain access to practically any machine in the environment
  • How enforcing MFA on all access interfaces within the environment materially increases the level of effort skilled attackers need to employ in order to achieve their objectives.
