Black Hat 2018 Hacker Survey Report

At the Black Hat Conference from August 4-9, 2018, privileged account management (PAM) and least privilege specialists, Thycotic surveyed over 300 White Hat and Black Hat hackers to create this year's Hacker Survey Report.

The report captures the hackers' perspective on Microsoft’s allegedly-improving security, social engineering, system configurations and much more. But, most importantly, it reveals that few businesses are implementing the kind of security that could really keep attackers out.

Here's what you'll learn:

Why a compromise of a user account is almost inevitable


The one risky employee behaviour that hackers love

Shark Fin

Why operating systems are only as secure as the people using them

Hacker in Group

How Thycotic recommends responding to the survey’s findings
