Event Details


Topic:DDoS is coming, are you prepared?
DDoS attacks and other security threats are not a matter of if, but a matter of when. Cyber extortion schemes like DDoS-for-Bitcoin ransoms are becoming increasingly popular, and leave businesses with the difficult decision of whether to give in to attackers’ demands or risk becoming inaccessible during peak shopping days. This talk will examine a real case in which a Fortune 500 client faced a massive Bitcoin extortion attack during their peak online shopping season and how their web properties were protected.

Speaker: Tin Zaw
Tin Zaw is a director of security solutions at Verizon Digital Media where he leads a global practice to help Verizon customers secure web properties. He started his career programming network protocols at QUALCOMM, participated in early days of the web infrastructure at Inktomi, made security products for 100+ million users at Symantec, and led web and product security teams at AT&T and Intuit, until settling in at Verizon.

He holds an MS degree in computer science and an MBA from University of Southern California, as well as an undergraduate degree in computer science from Pittsburg State University, Kansas. A long-time volunteer with OWASP, he is a former president of its Los Angeles chapter and currently co-leads the OWASP project on Automated Threats to Web Applications.
