TLDR:

Attackers are increasingly targeting cloud apps and identities to compromise organizations without touching the endpoint or conventional networked systems. This shift is driven by the SaaS revolution, complicated digital identities, and gaps in security controls protecting cloud identities. Techniques like AiTM phishing, IM phishing, SAMLjacking, Oktajacking, and shadow workflows are being used to target businesses. Organizations need to focus on securing cloud identities and developing strategies to detect and respond to identity-based attacks in the cloud.

Article Summary:

Attackers are leveraging “networkless” attack techniques to compromise organizations without touching the endpoint or conventional networked systems. This trend is fueled by the SaaS revolution and the changing IT landscape of companies. Most organizations are using multiple SaaS applications with complex digital identities, making it challenging to secure access to apps within a single platform.

Identity-based attacks are on the rise, with attackers targeting vulnerabilities in cloud identities. Techniques like AiTM phishing, IM phishing, SAMLjacking, Oktajacking, and shadow workflows are being used to exploit weaknesses in cloud apps and services. These attacks bypass traditional security controls and pose a significant challenge for organizations.

Cloud identities have become the new digital perimeter, presenting new opportunities for attackers to compromise businesses. Organizations need to focus on securing cloud identities and developing strategies to detect and respond to identity-based attacks in the cloud. Understanding these attack techniques and investing in identity security are crucial for protecting businesses in the evolving threat landscape.
