Webinar: Password Cracking 101

By: C Spire Staff on Sep 7, 2018 8:34:48 AM

password webinar 1Criminal hackers aren’t nearly as focused on your business' administrative accounts as they are individual employee accounts. Why? Because admin accounts rarely have direct access to highly valuable information like social security numbers, protected health information, etc.

New Call-to-action

The most sensitive data, like customer information, is typically located within an application that is only accessible from an employee workstation, virtual desktop, or terminal server. That’s why criminal hackers will often gain access to an environment and then work toward acquiring the password hashes for all user accounts.
