The LAPSUS$ hacking group has been one of the most prolific threats to cyber security in 2022, with many high-profile businesses admitting to breaches caused by this new threat.
Companies such as NVIDIA, Microsoft and Okta are among the most notable targets of LAPSUS$. They have been relatively anonymous up until late March when they become more public in their approach.
LAPSUS$ is unique because it does not use a ransomware model to exploit its victims, instead of deploying other tactics such as financially motivated campaigns. While they have stated they will be taking a hiatus for the foreseeable future, cyber criminals may evolve to use techniques like these against your business.
To protect yourself against attacks like these, be aware of social engineering tactics used by hackers, use complex and varied passwords to beat password stealers, and train staff to avoid issues.
