Fighting the Advanced DDoS Threat: Proactive Mitigation and Collaboration
DDoS attacks are an active threat averaging 175,000 a week, which will continue to grow. Across industries, the expected rate of grow means that eventually, very few organizations will be able to handle the increasing complexity, frequency, and impact from these attacks, alone. Only collaboration and information-sharing, along with collective application of best practices can help counter the growing threat from advanced DDoS attacks – and effectively and consistently thwarting cybercriminal goals.
What are some important changes in the DDoS landscape? How does the evolving complexity of the DDoS threat landscape play out along with the changing IT landscape in enterprises? Why does DDoS defense require a collective approach? What are some best practices for security practitioners? What are some challenges and trends unique to Asia and what can organizations do to address these?
