Bots Are Evolving. Can Your Business Keep Up?

Thursday, October 6th 2022 16:00 GMT / 17:00 CET

About this event

Last year we found bots cost businesses around 3.6% of their revenue, enough to mean the difference between profit and loss. We also discovered many common misconceptions about the nature of bots and how to prevent attacks.

A year on, what’s changed? Is there a better understanding of how these attacks work? Are businesses fighting back, or losing the war?

We commissioned independent B2B research specialists Coleman Parkes to survey 440 businesses based in the USA and UK across travel, entertainment, eCommerce, telecommunications and financial services to find out how businesses are dealing with bot attacks in 2022.

Join our panel of security experts as they pick apart the results and ask whether businesses are moving fast enough to win the war on bots.
