Credentials have become the number one attack methodology, according to the Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report. Mirroring the increased use of stolen credentials by attackers, 59% of penetration testers focus more than half of their security assessments on credentials versus exploits, according to a 2014 survey. The biggest challenge often rests in effectively managing the large number of passwords, hashes, and SSH keys.

In this webinar, participants will learn about:

  • Trends that cause attackers to increasingly use credentials
  • The ways attackers obtain credentials and move across the network
  • Techniques penetration testers use to simulate credential abuse
  • Efficient new ways to manage and reuse credentials with Metasploit Pro

The webcast will contain a presentation and a demo.
