  • The Evolution of BOT Nov 9 2021 6:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Tony Lauro, Director of Security Technology and Strategy, Akamai
    The past twelve months has shown a startling evolution in the life of BOT's, BotNet's and web application attack techniques.

  • Outmaneuver ATO Attackers Now Oct 26 2021 5:00 pm UTC 37 mins
    Tony Lauro, Director, Security Technology and Strategy, Akamai
    Account takeovers (ATO) continue to rise in severity and pervasiveness, particularly in industries where digital valuables are getting created at a faster rate than physical ones.

    In this session, we’ll explore the innovations your organization can use to change the future from one where attackers have the upper hand to one where you can fight back against the disruptive nature of account takeover
  • Cybersecurity Awareness 2021: Rethinking Risk in the Wake of DDoS Extortion Oct 21 2021 4:00 pm UTC 25 mins
    Tony Lauro, Director of Security Technology & Strategy, Akamai
    Your risk of a DDoS attack changed significantly since 2020, mostly driven by the largest global extortion campaign ever launched. Unlike other extortion activity from years past, where there was little follow-through on the actual threat, recent show-of-force attacks reached 500+ Gbps — a clear sign of highly capable and motivated threat actors. The extortion campaign signaled a notable shift in targeted verticals, with attackers expanding beyond commonly hit industries like finance, catching many organizations off guard and left scrambling for protection. With DDoS attackers more unpredictable, determined, and incented by extortion than ever before, it’s time to rethink DDoS defenses.

    Walk away with:
    - An understanding of the evolution of DDoS extortion
    - The ramifications on current security postures
    - The latest best practices to fight back and reduce your risk
