As valuable company data increasingly migrates to cloud apps and services, the risk and expense of data theft and leakage has risen dramatically. Malicious actors are less likely to attack the well-fortified back-end infrastructure of cloud app vendors, preferring to exploit the weakest link – the human element – to get in through the "front door". Compromised credentials via phishing attacks or other means or malware that hijacks a valid user session are some of the key threats that must be addressed in this new cloud landscape. This session will examine recent exploits leveraging cloud apps and services.
