In September, Arbor Networks participated in BrightTALK’s “Next Generation Threat Protection” virtual summit. The webinar we delivered was so successful, it became one of BrightTALK’s best attended, most popular webinars of the year! If you missed out on this significant event, a special “year-end update” is planned for Wednesday, Dec. 12, 11:00am Eastern Time/8:00am Pacific Time. Register today to attend this important session which examines the evolving DDoS threat and the mitigation strategies you should be implementing to protect your organization.
Name: A Decade of Denial: Why DDoS Still Exists and What To Do About It
Date: Wednesday, December 12, 2012
Time: 11am Eastern Time/8:00am Pacific Time
Moderator: Jeff Wilson, Senior Analyst, Infonetics Research
Distributed Denial of Service, or DDoS, has been around since the late 1990s, but hit in a big way in Feb. 2000 when sustained attacks took down several large Web sites including Yahoo and Amazon. Since then, the techniques for DDoS have evolved to leverage different attack motivations, as well as to bypass protection measures put in place to stop these attacks. In this session, led by industry analyst, Jeff Wilson of Infonetics Research, the history of DDoS and why it is still so prevalent today will be examined. Topics will focus on attacker motivation, various threat vectors and new tools being used – and why you need to be updating your mitigation measures at the same pace.
