Defending Account Takeovers at Remitly: Throwing Out the Bad, but Not the Good
Account Takeover attacks don't follow conventional attack patterns - they look, act, and feel like legitimate users. Without the right tooling, visibility into your environment, and intimate understanding of your users, defending against Account Takeover attacks (ATOs) can be extremely difficult. Worse yet, if done incorrectly, defending against ATOs can end up impacting legitimate users and traffic.
There are ways to make defending these attacks much easier.
In this webinar with guest Kevin Hanaford, Head of Information Security at Remitly, we'll discuss:
Kevin is the Head of Information Security, Infrastructure, and IT at Remitly and leads the teams responsible for Remitly's security posture, cloud environment, development and deployment tools, and is a regular fixture at the coffee machines. Prior to arriving at Remitly, Kevin spent time running security programs for Amazon and PayPal, and managing NOCs for Bungie, Xbox, and Office 365. He takes a customer-centric view on the work he oversees and truly believes that you can increase your security posture without adding friction or sacrificing convenience if you try hard enough... it just may feel a bit like hunting for unicorns in the process.
