The SBC Webinars series continues on Tuesday 8 December when Cloudflare presents Close Your Security Gaps and Protect 100% of Your Traffic.
In the session, specialists from Cloudflare’s security team will detail some of the cyber threats faced by the betting and gaming industry, along with the steps operators, platform providers, and suppliers can take to improve their protection.
The online gambling industry is the target of increasingly sophisticated cyber attacks, ranging from automated bots carrying out credential stuffing and intellectual property scraping to Layer 3 DDoS attacks.
Such threats can cause serious damage to the targeted companies, as reduced network speed and performance have the potential to adversely affect user experience and even result in a loss of business.
Cloudflare’s online security experts will use the webinar to show how companies can build their protection levels and outline effective solutions to secure online traffic (all OSI layers) against bots and cyber attacks, while improving network reliability and the performance of applications.
The panel for the webinar features:
- Philip Björkman – Customer Development, EMEA Gaming and Gambling, Cloudflare
- Stéphane Nouvellon – Principal Solutions Engineer, Cloudflare
Björkman said: “The security risks faced by online businesses of all kinds are growing, and the threats have the potential to be particularly damaging to gambling companies. Just imagine the cost of lost business due to a betting operator’s website being taken down or seeing its speed seriously reduced during a major sporting event.
“It’s vital that betting and gaming businesses act to reduce the risk of being adversely affected by a cyber attack, so the Cloudflare team are looking forward to showing the audience some of the most-effective steps they can take to improve their protection.”
