Account Takeover in Office 365

August 18, 2021 @ 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

We’ll navigate through uncharted security territory by analyzing the attack lifecycle in the cloud and dissecting a real-world attack. The same technology that makes the cloud dynamic can have the opposite effect on an organization’s ability to implement detection and response in cloud environments. This includes the adding additional layer of preventative controls in addition to MFA, because it’s increasingly being bypassed in O365 as an example. Sam Schneider, Security Engineer at Vectra, will help us navigate through the uncharted security territory by analyzing the attack lifecycle in the cloud, reviewing the top cloud security threats, and dissecting a real-world cloud attack. Additionally, he’ll provide key takeaways for managing access, detection and response, and security operations
