About this event
Last year saw an unprecedented scale of cyber-attacks and data breaches facilitated and accelerated by Covid-19, from scalper bots targeting the PS5 launch to Twitter’s high-profile hack in July. Cybercriminals are upping the ante to capitalise on increased online activity, and automated technology is set to play a huge part in the defence against bot attacks in 2021.
With bots quickly becoming faster and more sophisticated and cybercrime communities growing stronger, it is vital that businesses strive to understand emerging threats, and the scale of the bot challenge, to stay ahead of attackers.
Whilst our reliance on digital services continues to increase, more traffic to websites and APIs means customer-focused sites are a prime target for bot attacks.
During our panel discussion, we delve into the biggest bot threats facing brands and customers in 2021.
Here’s what you’ll learn

- What existing and emerging bots can we expect to see this year?
