MUSA Complimentary Webinar: Practices for Combating Unauthorized Scraping
Webinar: Practices for Combating Unauthorized Scraping
Thursday, March 30, 2023
2:00-2:45 p.m. ET
The Mitigating Unauthorized Scraping Alliance (MUSA) hosted a webinar discussion to examine the technical and legal enforcement mechanisms available to industry to combat unauthorized scraping. This was the first event in a series of webinars examining topics related to unauthorized scraping.
Currently, there are no industry standards for combating unauthorized scraping, and a singular approach to addressing the practice does not exist. However, there are various tools that companies utilize to mitigate unauthorized scraping. This event discussed the need for industry collaboration and highlighted the mechanisms available to companies to combat unauthorized scraping.
MUSA brings together industry members to address challenges and establish a unified front against unauthorized scraping and data misuse. It is working with member companies and experts to publish industry-aligned practices to mitigate unauthorized scraping across member platforms, reduce the attack vector for unauthorized scraping threat actors, and serve as a resource for media and policymaker engagement.
