Description

Ashley Madison data stolen. . .
Twitch.tv breached, passwords need to be reset. . .
10 million passwords leaked! 13 million! 80 million!

What does this mean to you and your websites? You use secure passwords, your sites haven’t been compromised, and you have safeguards in place to protect your customers, so you don’t need to worry, right?

Right?

Jarrod Overson reveals the world where these passwords are traded, sold, verified, and used to exploit your sites. Even if you are diligent, doing everything you can to protect yourself and your users, you can’t protect against legitimate logins. So what can you do? Jarrod explains how you can start exploring how vulnerable you really are, how you might start recognizing malicious traffic, and what you can do to start taking a stand against your attackers.
