How Apps Open the Door to BotsEddie Doyle of Check Point Research on the Growing Threat
The user-friendly aspects of apps can enable malicious bots to infiltrate, says Eddie Doyle of Check Point Research, who offers insights on addressing the issue.
In a video interview at Information Security Media Group's recent Fraud and Breach Summit in Washington, Doyle discusses:
- How the growing app economy provides a new channel for malicious bots to infiltrate and thrive;
- Why 5G networks will further compound the issue;
- Whether this can be fixed, or if bot attacks are simply the new normal in the age of IoT.
Doyle, global security strategist at Check Point Research, a unit of Check Point Software Technologies, has a particular interest in educating people to become human firewalls in the combat against social engineering.
