Topic – Why Today’s Spam Filters Fail - Spam isn’t just a big nuisance; it’s big business as well. So why is spam persisting?
Ferris Research estimates that spam will cost $140 billion worldwide in 2008, of which $42 billion will be in the United States alone. If you compare these numbers with Ferris’s 2007 estimates of $100 billion and $35 billion, you’ll see that the cost of spam has increased substantially over 12 months.

This webinar will address a number of issues relating to the proliferation of spam, including:
• Who are the spammers behind this black market, and how do they operate so successfully?
• A 95%, 96%, 97%, and even 98% spam catch rate sounds great to organizations being inundated by spam. But is such a solution really as effective as it seems on the surface?
• If the catch rate is too low to effectively eliminate spam, are we giving spammers an economic incentive to continue their attacks?
• An effective solution should result in a measurable decline in spam—and that’s not what’s happening worldwide. What’s behind the delay?
• As spam volumes continue to grow, the need for a spam filter that consistently achieves significantly more accurate filtering with very few and easily identifiable false positives becomes more urgent. Is there such a solution available on the market today?
• Recipient reputation appears to be a promising new tool in the fight against spam. When incorporated into a system incorporating real-time centralized message rating, it is projected that very high levels of accuracy can be achieved. What kind of catch rate is possible?
