Lessons From Billions of Breached Records - Troy Hunt

Assume breach. Hackers exploit vulnerabilities, bots hammers services, opportunistic kids take over accounts. It was bad enough already, and then we connected all our things and put everything in the cloud which massively accelerated the rate of breaches and the volumes of data impacted when the inevitable finally happens. Further exacerbating the problem is the leverage relatively small, unsophisticated actors have; it’s never been easier to do so much damage with so few resources.

This talk shares lessons from the trenches and real world stories from dealing with billions of breached records whilst running the Have I Been Pwned data breach service. You’ll see how previous breaches occurred, who was behind them and how we need to adapt to prevent them in the future. You’ll also see how the breach landscape is changing, in particular how hacktivists are being “called to arms” and are using breached personal data in the war in Ukraine. It’s a look at the data breach landscape like you’ve never seen it before.
