Account Takeovers (ATOs), where a cybercriminal gains access to an individual’s online account, are on the rise. ATOs take advantage of weak customer passwords and single-factor authentication, rendering traditional endpoint security solutions insufficient. Yet most organizations don’t have the internal IT resources–including staff with fraud detection expertise–required to spot unusual user behavior. This e-book outlines how Account Takeovers work, how criminals benefit from them, and provides advice for ATO prevention.
