Tonight’s topic

Beat the Bots 
Being able to manage bots intelligently can give your business an edge. Bot traffic can make up as much as 70% of the total traffic to a website — and that requires a lot of overhead to manage. On top of that, it's becoming critical to prevent credential stuffing attacks. It is estimated more than 30% of credential stuffing attacks go undetected, and with average attacks costing upwards of $6M you need an effective bot management strategy. We will discuss the impact of bots and credential stuffing on your business, and strategies available to combat them.

Interesting and informative as always. 
The harvesting of once-hacked credentials was a thought-provoking subject! 
Michael Brunker
Regional CISO
I thought the event was just great, the venue, food and beverages were marvelous. Thank you Akamai.
The subject matter and the debates I found extremely informative and useful, really enjoyed sitting next to Richard who was very helpful.
Great event.
Jim Sheridan
Head of Technology Resilience
Excellent evening with lively debate.  
Having a real use case for the product resulted in an interesting and relevant discussion.  
Iain, as ever, was a superb host and ensured the evening ran smoothly.
Head of Risk & Control
Financial Services Organisation
Interesting topics and debate as usual – good participation and a good mix of firms.  
Very relevant to issues at my previous firm – not so much at the new one 
Financial Services Organisation
Good to have the topics split across a couple of areas so that interest and applicability maintained even where one of the topics was felt to be less critical for my current business…
Was made more valuable by having testimony in the room from an actual business client using the products and services  and not just hearing solely from people in ‘vendor-land’
Group IT Security Manager
Energy Organisation
Host: Excellent as ever
Vendor: Interesting offering with good input from the client representative, especially with respect to minimal impact on customer experience.
