Service accounts are a favorite target of attackers because these accounts give them privileged access to systems, applications and data. Since service accounts do not have strict password reset policies, attackers can exploit them for extended periods of time without being detected. In this podcast, cybersecurity expert Jeff Warren speaks with host Jonathan Sander about four service account attacks and how to protect against them, including preventing attackers from using silver or golden tickets.
