When Bots Attack! Stopping OWASP’s New Top 20 Automated Threats

Presented by

Rami Essaid, Co-Founder Distil Networks

About this talk

The OWASP Top 10 Vulnerabilities, last published in 2013, has been a valuable list of criteria by which any Web Application Firewall (WAF) is evaluated, but has a glaring flaw, it only focuses on vulnerabilities in the code, and ignores automated threats. In late 2015, this flaw was addressed and OWASP released the first Automated Threat Handbook specifically to help organizations better understand and respond to the notable worldwide increase of automated threats from bots. This presentation discusses these new bot threats, bot evolution, and how to fight back. Keypoints: - How malicious bots attack and cause problems - Why homegrown IT solutions have troubles keeping up with bots, threats - See Distil Networks in action finding, fighting bots
