Topic: DDoS Attacks: The Stakes Have Changed, Have You?

Last month a massive botnet leveraging compromised Internet of Things (IoT) devices was used to launch sophisticated multi-vector distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks that made front page news around the world. IoT botnets are not a new phenomenon, and DDoS attacks have been making headlines for years, yet many businesses remain under-invested and ill prepared to defend themselves.

Why You Should Attend

The webinar is ideal for understanding exactly how the stakes have changed, and what it means for the assumptions organizations have been making with regard to protecting the availability of their business-critical websites, services and applications. In light of the recent attacks, we will expose the multiple attack vectors of the Mirai IoT botnet and provide best practices for mitigation.

Key Topics for Discussion
  • The evolution of IoT-based DDoS attacks
  • The implications for DDoS defense
  • Current best practices in DDoS defense
