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

Shape’s Vice President of Intelligence Center, Dan Woods, will present at the upcoming Retail Cyber Intelligence Summit on 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 the latest threat intelligence on effective attack tools and techniques that cybercriminals are using to circumvent traditional countermeasures with devastating effectiveness. 

“We’re looking forward to continuing our partnership with Shape Security and are pleased to have them as a presenting sponsor at our upcoming Retail Cyber Intelligence Summit in Denver,” said Suzie Squier, president of RH-ISAC.

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.
