Netacea will be sponsoring the 17th Annual e-Crime & Cybersecurity Congress on the 5th and 6th of March 2019, in London.
This year’s event will look at the true drivers and necessities of cybersecurity and the new thinking, technologies and people needed to stay digitally fit.
Join us and hear from our keynote speakers, Nick Baglin and Ian Pitfield to learn more about the bot landscape, how it’s evolving and to how to respond to sophisticated threats.
Ian Pitfield, Senior Technical Consultant
Topic: Inside the mind of a cybercriminal – How to beat the bots
With the complexity and number of botnets and account takeover attacks increasing, we take you on a whistle-stop tour of the threat landscape and demonstrate how easy it is for cybercriminals to target your website.
We will discuss some of the tool, tactics and procedures used by cybercriminals and take a practical look at the different approaches to dealing with an increasingly complex threat landscape. We also discuss the perfect storm faced by organisations in the wake of massive data breaches as they battle to strike the balance between account security and the end-user experience.
Gain practical insights into:
- How attackers can access stolen credentials
- What tools and techniques attackers commonly leverage
- Different approaches to dealing with the bot activities and their limitations
- Questions to ask when evaluating bot management solutions

Topic: The credential craze – How to protect yourself from bots
Recent news of large, aggregated credential collections has made it easier than ever for cybercriminals to get their hands on billions of unique usernames and passwords – at low or no cost.
Credential stuffing relies on automation, with basic tools making it simple to use the login data to try and find a combination match across many different sites. They are looking to break into your website and apps to steal money, takeover loyalty points, expose IP and corrupt data.
So with automated traffic now representing more than half of all internet traffic, how do you identify a bot from a human, and what can you do to stop the malicious ones from launching an account takeover attack?
This presentation at the e-Crime & Cybersecurity event will reveal the rising sophistication of bots, the true extent of the problem and why it’s everybody’s problem. And importantly, the approaches to mitigating the threat, when a new way is needed to outsmart the most sophisticated of bots.
