The Lapsus$ hacking group has targeted (and successfully breached) a number of high-profile technology groups. It first gained the spotlight for a ransomware attack against the Brazilian Ministry of Health at the end of 2021, and has been quite busy since, targeting high-profile technology companies.

Watch this video featuring CounterCraft CSO Dan Brett and CEO David Barroso, to see our founders react to the Lapsus$ hack of Okta, the identity and access management company. They discuss what happened and get to the bottom line of the attack — namely, that advanced tools aren’t necessary to infiltrate. With the basics, like stolen credentials, lateral movement, data exfiltration, it is still possible to clean up even at big companies.

David gives examples of the actions that Lapsus$ took and why they are so difficult to detect. The cybersecurity CEOs also talk about how cyber deception gives high-fidelity alerts in difficult situations such as this one.

Watch Dan and David talk about how this hack happened, and how it could have been prevented.
