Diverse IT Security Breakfast
Join us for breakfast at Printhall on Nov. 27 to discuss DDoS attack prevention.
A 2013 security report found that Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks were amongst the most popular attack vectors used by cyber criminals – with 32% of organisations surveyed, falling victim to them. During a DDoS attack, a businesses servers are bombarded with connection requests, which prevent the site from accepting new, legitimate requests and eventually taking the site off-line. The attack in itself can be very disruptive and costly to a business using up valuable resources in halting the attack and recovering afterwards. DDoS attacks can also be used as a decoy to occupy security resources while another attack is being carried out in another area. While IT and Security staff are fighting one fire, a potentially more hazardous one is starting somewhere else but they can’t see it!
Join Diverse IT and A10 as we discuss the measures that can be taken to prevent DDoS attacks and minimize the associated downtime. A delicious breakfast will be provided in the luxurious surrounds of the Chairman’s Office at PrintHall.
