Detecting and Blocking Bots and Non Human Visitors (Workshop)

  • Autodesk Gallery 1 Market St #200 San Francisco, CA 94105 US (map)

Women in Security and Privacy (WISP) is proud to partner with PerimeterX to offer a 90 minutes hands-on web security workshop that discusses the threats from the latest generation of malicious Bots (nonhuman automated tools) and puts you into the drivers’ seat to learn on how to protect your web application.

Today up to 50% of a company’s web traffic can come from Bots and create a real threat to websites and applications. Bots are ideal workers for repetitive and complex tasks and can easily and efficiently run on different hosts and cloud services—or invisible as malware on infected machines. Bad Bots are participating in different types of attacks impacting all types of applications and businesses—performing the entire scale of attacks from web scraping, account abuse (account creation or account takeover), credit card and coupon guessing scalping, and click fraud. Bots range in complexity and abilities from simple scripts to full browser-based tools that can render complex pages and even solve CAPTCHA challenges.

Please feel free to invite your fellow privacy and security colleagues, but hurry! Space is limited.
