The FBI has released a private industry notification detailing how cybercriminals have been exploiting network access and escalating network privilege.
As remote work has become the norm during the pandemic, many companies have adapted to changing environments and technologies. Due to this, network access and privilege escalation may not be monitored as closely.
Along with this, more automation services are being implemented across networks. This makes it more difficult to regulate who has access to different points in the network and what type of access they have.
