Technology - Live Event

The shifting front line of fraud

20th February 2020 | 5:00pm GMT | London
A Meet the Boss Live event in association with Shape Security

Join Shape, recognised as a World Economic Forum Technology Pioneer, and a select group of cyber security thought leaders for an evening of conversation and idea-sharing. We’ll explore how and why the traditional fraud paradigm has shifted and what this has meant for conventional fraud prevention tools, processes and rhetoric since the advent of online transacting almost 25 years ago.

A consequence of this shift suggests that when nefarious automated traffic is mitigated, attackers generally return their attention to manual fraud. In this session Dan Woods, VP Shape Security Intelligence Center and former FBI agent, will discuss how to detect these manual attacks, whilst sharing insights into how to protect against some of the most costly and sophisticated human-powered attack vectors out there – Magecart, manual ATO, gift card cracking, and loyalty point theft’.

Recent increases in both synthetic traffic and manual fraud have engendered a more holistic approach to security with more and more organisations opting to merge their security, fraud and business teams to ensure that data and outcomes are shared to defeat fraud whilst simultaneously improving user experience. The key takeaway remains – security and usability do not have to be mutually exclusive priorities for your business.
