Excerpt

“DDoS attacks are deliberate, targeted events – happening on a daily basis – that demand a preparedness plan much like homeowners preparing for hurricane season. When the hurricane inevitably hits, they don’t panic and the damage to the home is minimal because they knew what to expect. When it comes to DDoS mitigation, a playbook can be essential to a controlled, streamlined response to a DDoS attack.”

Don’t be caught unprepared for a DDoS attack. Learn about the three most important components to put in your DDoS attack incident response plan and how to ensure the plan will work if and when a DoS or DDoS denial of service attack strikes your enterprise.
