PANEL: One Fell Swoop: Detecting and Blocking Coordinated Attacks Using Clustering Analysis
Modern-day fraud is rarely executed by lone wolves. In order to maximize financial gain, fraudsters today launch large-scale coordinated attacks using sophisticated tools and techniques such as account incubation and IP obfuscation that allow the accounts to appear legitimate when viewed in isolation. A new, clustering-based approach enables detection of these attacks by monitoring and flagging suspicious groups of accounts behaving in coordination. Join a panel of experts from Pinterest, Western Union and Letgo to hear how they partnered with DataVisor to enhance their protection against these mass attacks.
