The Internet is out of control – Fighting Back at Bots
By Netacea / 06th Jun 2019
Protect your business and take back control from bad bots
When: On-demand webinar.
In 2019, it is a simple truth that the moment a web app goes online, it is bombarded by automated bots scraping content, stuffing stolen credentials or abusing functionality designed for real, human customers.
A trillion-dollar cyber-crime business has been born out of this environment, at the expense of organisations around the world. As the cyber threat grows, the internet is becoming increasingly unfair and driving businesses to spend roughly $88bn on cybersecurity, with this figure predicted to increase by 1,200% to $1tn in 2021.
Organisations are unfairly paying for bandwidth and resources to serve bots more than customers. Content is being stolen and resold. Website analytics are skewed, and the marketing budget is spent chasing ghosts. Your customers’ accounts are being compromised using automated credential stuffing tools, leaving you liable for their personal data being breached.
The big question is: What can you do about bots?
In our informative webinar, you will hear from leading cybersecurity expert Scott Helme, as he explores the serious threats facing organisations and addresses how to take back control from bad bots.
This webinar will discuss:
- The perfect storm for account takeover attacks – Why the time to act is now
- Good bots vs bad bots – How to make sure your customers are always favoured over bots
- Regain control of your website traffic – Increasing your security to improve the efficiency of your marketing spend
- Real-world stories of bot attacks – The targets are not who you think
- Takeaways and strategies – Don’t become a victim
