Whether launched to disrupt an organization or to distract a security team so that fraud can be committed elsewhere, Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks remain a powerful weapon in today's arsenal of advanced threats. For any organization with significant revenue associated to online transactions, an effective DDoS mitigation strategy is a critical component of an overall risk management strategy.
This webinar will delve into:
The frequency with which fraud and data loss are associated to DDoS attacks;
Business impacts, including damage to brand reputation and customer trust;
Strategies and solutions for fraud mitigation and DDoS defense.
Since 2013, global organizations of all sectors and sizes have grappled with a new wave of distributed denial of service attacks that at best have been a nuisance, at worst have served as distractions so cyber-criminals could commit fraud. DDoS defenses have improved, but the attacks continue to evolve in scale and sophistication. What are the true business impacts of these attacks, and what are today's most successful strategies for mitigating them?
Results of the 2015 DDoS Impact & Response Study are in, and among the eye-opening results:
55% of respondents say they have experienced as many or more attacks as in the past year.
60% say the attacks were equal or more powerful than previous attacks.
In this session, you will see the full results of this new survey, and receive expert analysis of the findings and how to put them to use in your own organization. See how organizations assess their own abilities to detect and prevent DDoS attacks, as well as the top technology investments for 2016.
