Know Thy Enemy: Mitigating Bad Bots in eCommerce

Mark Freeman and Ran Wasserman -- SecuredTouch

Presentation

Bots at their most simple level are scripts used to automate tasks. However, with malicious bots making up a full one-fifth of all web traffic according to ZDNet, businesses need to be able to reliably assess whether users are human or automated as well as legitimate or not.

This presentation starts with an overview of valid use cases for bots, then looks at how bots have evolved. Signals to distinguish bots from human activity are reviewed next. The slides close with a three-stage plan on how to tackle bad bots.
