Staying One Step Ahead of Online Fraudsters – And Their Bots
Malicious bots are everywhere. From denial-of-service attacks designed to “box out” or slow legitimate traffic to inventory hoarding of hot consumer goods to credential stuffing attacks that attempt to validate user credentials for account takeover (ATO), bad bots are busy disrupting your customer experience online – and your bottom line. But it doesn’t have to be a losing battle against today’s sophisticated and highly motivated bot operators.

Join ISMG's Dan Gunderman for a moderated discussion that will draw from the experience of attendees, offering key insights around the latest DDoS-launching botnets, credential stuffing attacks and other associated bot-related challenges - like inventory hoarding - faced by today's online retailers. We’ll dive into the latest bot operator motivations and techniques, tactics and procedures (TTPs) and how enterprise defenses must evolve to add friction to the attacker’s efforts without compromising customer experience.

Discussion topics will includes:

  • The underlying criminal economy enabling direct fraud campaigns
  • The initial stages of the ATO kill chain and how threat actors use bots to conduct attack recon, weaponization and delivery
  • The latest strategies and tools to "authenticate" the customer without adding friction to the customer experience
  • The evolution of attacker fraud techniques and how enterprise defenders can gain an upper hand


Joining Dan to provide expert insight and case studies is Tony Lauro, Director of Security Strategy for Akamai Technologies.
