According to the latest Verizon Data Breach Investigation Report, nearly 70% of reported data breaches were executed through web applications. The best way to approach the current state of affairs is by staying abreast of the latest attack patterns. In this webinar, we'll profile some of the most interesting and often missed attacks we have observed and blocked "in the wild."

Specifically, we'll walk through several case studies of malicious attacks that have occurred across the ThreatX customer base in 2019. We will also examine multiple attacker techniques including how they work, the risks they raise to your apps, and strategies to counter them. Join Chris Brazdziunas, Chief Product Officer, and Will Woodson, Lead Security Engineer, at ThreatX, for this 45-minute discussion.

Topics we'll cover:

  • How attackers are flying under the radar†
  • Understanding automated attacks such as credential stuffing, carding, account take-over, fake account creation, and password attacks
  • The challenges of dealing with attackers hiding behind valid proxy services
  • Case studies of real-world attacks and best practices to defeat them
