Cyber Security Threat Series: Web Scraping eBook

November 17, 2016

Web scrapers are bots that use web crawling technology to download the content of websites. These bots fall into a grey area of legality; in some cases a site owner will want its content lifted and aggregated elsewhere (ex: news aggregation sites); in other cases, doing so is tantamount to theft (ex: price scraping). This eBook looks at the issues around web scrapers and what can be done to control their activity.

What you will learn:

  • The definition of web scraping
  • The potential damage web scraping causes
  • The motives behind web scraping
  • The legality of web scraping
  • How web scraping is perpetrated
  • How to stop your site from being scraped
