  • Data Doesn't Lie - Media Industry Full of Credential Stuffing Attacks Dec 15 2020 5:00 pm UTC 13 mins

    This presentation will examine credential stuffing attacks targeting media companies. Based on observations from billions of cyberattacks globally, the presentation will include data and analysis of attacks directed toward the media industry between 2018 and 2019, the countries those attacks originate from where they're directed, and how organizations can best combat and mitigate the attacks. The presentation will also highlight year-over-year attack traffic trends, which last year showed that media services were among the most popular targets, and explain why the services are so attractive to so-called "bad actors."
  • Phishing Factories and Economies - The Real Persistent Threat Dec 10 2020 5:00 pm UTC 22 mins
    Or Katz - Principal Lead, Security Researcher at Akamai
    Despite years of publicity and millions of dollars in employee training, phishing remains one of the largest insider threats that organizations face. Employees unwittingly give up personal and corporate information to malicious actors every day.

    No longer limiting themselves to email, criminals are exploiting popular social media networks, instant messaging applications, and online file-sharing services. Sadly, criminals will always leverage current events. Akamai’s expert Security Research team has noted dozens of new Coronavirus domains are being deployed each day and we expect this trend to continue.
    Defending against this dangerous attack vector will continue to require insights and modern techniques.

    In this presentation, join Or Katz, Principal Lead Security Researcher, as he takes a deep dive into:

    - The current phishing landscape and what makes these scams so effective
    - Rapidly evolving commercial techniques of attackers to improve operations, distribution and efficiency
    - Zero-day phishing detection and how it helps to fight back and reduce the impact of these scams

    Martin McKeay - Editorial Dir., Tony Lauro – Dir. Sec. Strategy & Patrick Sullivan - CTO, Global Sec. at Akamai
    Loyalty programs are a big business — for criminals. Account takeover attacks lead to the theft and sale of rewards. And while consumer password reuse plays a major enabling role in this criminal enterprise, brands that don’t protect their customers still take the hit to their reputations.

    - Attack data that demonstrates the criminal appeal of loyalty programs and the companies who offer them
    - New attack patterns and trends that emerged in two years of credential stuffing, web application, and DDoS attack data
    - How the retail, travel, and hospitality industry unwittingly made themselves into more lucrative targets during the pandemic lockdowns
    - The frighteningly low cost for stolen rewards, travel packages, and a complete customer database
    - What you can personally do to protect your own loyalty rewards from account takeover and theft
    - How brands can protect their customers and their reputations

    - DDoS (both Blackmail and Mega Attacks)

  • Shoring up your defenses with Web Application Security Recorded: Oct 20 2020 43 mins
    Karthik Mohan, Technical Account Manager, Akamai
    Most organizations know that they need application security, but not all organizations have the time, money, or experience to maintain the highly sophisticated and customized rules provided by traditional application security tools.

Akamai’s Web Application Protector solves that problem, by providing an intuitive administrator interface, pre-configured rule groupings, automatic rule updates, and self-serve configuration.

    In this webinar we are going to cover Akamai’s Web Application Protector by demonstrating how easy it is to configure and tune the firewall by looking into analytics that is captured by the platform.
