DDoS Defense: How to Break the Link to Advanced Threats
Over the course of the past two years, enterprises worldwide have seen a significant increase in the power and scale of DDoS attacks – some of them, based on the Mirai botnet, leveraging IoT devices. And many of these attacks have a direct link to nation state actors and their advanced threats, which use the same methodologies commonly found in DDoS toolkits. Against such threats and threat actors, traditional, perimeter-based DDoS defenses are insufficient.
What types of DDoS attacks is your organization detecting? What are the most common attack vectors? How should you refocus your defenses against DDoS and advanced threats?
If you’re looking for andwers to these questions the join ISMG’s Nick Holland for this interactive roundtable that will draw from the experiences of the attendees, offering insight on how they have been able to improve detection and defense against DDoS and advanced threats. Specific areas for discussion will include:
- What types – and size – of DDoS attacks are most commonly detected?
- What are the most prevalent attack vectors?
- What is the direct link to advanced threats and nation state attackers?
- How must enterprise defenses evolve beyond the traditional perimeter to detect and prevent these attacks?
