How do you protect your customers and employees from rampant phishing and fraudulent sites that pop up every day? Criminals are banking on the fact that you cant find every single one to block them or warn customers and employees about every new attack. Bolster protects against phishing and fraud scams by leveraging the power of AI and automation to fight scale with scale. AI that combines deep learning, computer vision, and natural language processing to identify criminal intent is far more accurate, and automatically taking these sites down provides protection before these attacks are able to do damage. 

Join Bolsters CTO and co-founder Shashi Prakash and SANS Expert Jake Williams for an in-depth discussion into the cutting-edge technologies that can help companies achieve proactive cyber defense, which eliminate threats before they do damage rather than waiting for an attack and defending against it.

Some of the questions we will discuss:

  • Why is AI uniquely valuable to solving the problem of the explosion in phishing and fraud scams?
  • What does it take to take down a phishing or fraud scam site once it is discovered? 
  • How does site takedown automation shift the balance of power away from cyber criminals and back to companies? 
  • What are real life examples of how companies have stopped these attacks before they were able to do damage?
