T3 12/7: Rick Wesson on detecting botnets, click-fraud and id theft

Events, Talks, Visitors

Rick Wesson, of Support Intelligence, will speak about the tools he is building to detect global abuse patterns, using realtime black lists, spamtraps and honey pots.

Understanding what your network is doing to the rest of the community is difficult- we discuss how to use our tools to understand how your network is abusing other networks, and we show graphs and statistics of trends globably and within the USA on identity theft and click-fraud.

Rick has worked in the IETF and ICANN on DNS, whois, and Registry and Registrar protocols. He served for 4 years as the CTO of the Registrars Constituency in the GNSO/ICANN framework and for 2 years on the ICANN Security and Stability Committee.

His talk is scheduled for Thursday 12/7 at 4PM.
