Changes in how we build, run and secure information systems have also changed how we look at authentication and access control. The emerging concept of identity is transforming the ways that humans and non-human actors alike make use of data and compute power. At the same time, organizations’ focus on identity also means that it has become a focus for attackers. To assess the ways that old and new attacks are targeting digital identities, F5 Labs is presenting findings from our 2023 Identity Threat Report: The Unpatchables.
In a follow-up to the September session on credential stuffing, this talk will focus on phishing and multi-factor authentication bypass techniques. As phishing has grown over the last several years, its tools and tactics have transformed. We will identify which organizations are most targeted and explore recent developments that make it harder to spot and trickier to mitigate, using a combination of Dark Web intelligence and quantitative methods.
This talk on October 19, 2023 at 1:00 p.m. Eastern/10:00 a.m. Pacific will cover recent developments in attacker approaches to circumvent multi-factor authentication, what these developments mean for defenders, and which forms of MFA are able to resist the new approaches.
