Cybercriminal Footprint Erasure: Response Strategies

Like legitimate companies, fraudulent businesses have made notable progress in identifying and accessing their target audience while also evading unwanted web page visits by cyber defense systems. As part of this strategy, it's normal for phishing websites to restrict access for certain device types, connection attempts from specific geo-locations, and automated systems, such as scrapers, bots, and spiders.

During the presentation, Javier will explore:

  • Tactics cybercriminals use to hide their fraudulent pages from security systems;

  • Methods of dealing with these obscuring measures;

  • Next steps in the never-ending war between cyber fraudsters and cybersecurity companies.
