We know from experience and the recent Verizon Data Breach Incident Report that the root cause of most ransomware and other data breaches is passwords. Unfortunately, ransomware and other credential-based attacks have significantly escalated during the past year. During this webinar, you will learn why passwords and multi-factor authentication based on passwords and other weak factors is not enough.

Join Security MVP, Paula Januszkiewicz, as she demonstrates how passwords and password-based MFA can be exploited. Then learn what you can do to mitigate the risk of account takeovers and other credential-based attacks from threatening your organization.


  • Where the technology weaknesses are, and how to take passwords from the Operating System to perform several operations
