Shape Security’s VP of Intelligence Center to Speak at Upcoming Retail Cyber Intelligence Summit

Author: Shape Security

Dan Woods, Shape Security’s Vice President of Intelligence Center, will present at the upcoming Retail Cyber Intelligence Summit taking place September 24-25, 2019, at the Four Seasons Hotel in Denver, Colorado.

2018 saw a significant increase in user credential spills from retailers. And as the retail industry continues to increase its digitization, it creates more incentives for attackers, as well as increases retailers’ potential attack surfaces. In fact, more than 50 percent of all e-commerce fraud losses were from cyber-attacks such as ATO, gift card cracking, and scalping. In addition, up to 99% of traffic on retail and e-commerce login forms was due to account takeover attempts! 

Dan’s session, titled “The Anatomy of Web and Mobile Application’s Costliest Attacks,” will discuss actual attacks launched against retail and hospitality organizations and explain attackers’ motivations and monetization schemes. Dan will also share threat intelligence on an insidious new attack tool that cybercriminals are using to circumvent traditional countermeasures with devastating effectiveness. 

The Retail Cyber Intelligence Summit is tailored for strategic leaders and cybersecurity practitioners from both physical and online retailers, gaming properties, grocers, hotels, restaurants, consumer product manufacturers and cybersecurity industry partners. The full conference agenda and information on how to register is available here.
