Helping Build Google's AdSense Network
Shuman Ghosemajumder, CTO at Shape Security, helped develop the Google AdSense network, which grew to become a multibillion-dollar pay-per-click advertising business over a few years. Along the way, his team learned firsthand how quickly criminal groups could adapt to new technologies.
'Helping build the AdSense network at Google in the early 2000s taught us a lot about the ingenuity and speed with which cybercriminals could evolve,' he says, explaining how the team saw sophisticated click-fraud attempts, both automated and manual, from all over the world. 
'We had to proactively and creatively invest in new approaches and technology, including very large-scale machine learning systems a decade before the current industry fascination with AI [artificial intelligence] and ML,' Ghosemajumder says. The lessons learned helped inform future strategies for protecting against fraud and abuse.
