Threat Update 36 – A Supply Chain Attack By Any Other Name

Cybersecurity News, Incident Response

The SolarWinds supply chain attack was seen as a wake-up call for many in business, IT, and security. Both attackers & defenders took notice of the attack’s effectiveness, and created a hyper-awareness around future supply chain attacks – attackers looking for new ways to inject themselves, and defenders scrutinizing the tools and processes their organizations employ.

Join Kilian Englert and Ryan O’Boyle from the Varonis Incident Response team as they look at a supply chain attack that silently stole cloud credentials for several months before detection. Ryan and Kilian also provide some tips on ways organizations can help identify potential issues resulting from a cloud-focused supply chain attack.
