Financial services companies have been the target of a serious, sustained, and well-funded DDoS campaign for more than a year. What these attacks have continued to demonstrate is that DDoS will continue to be a popular and increasingly complex attack vector. DDoS is no longer simply a network issue, but is increasingly a feature or additional aspect of other advanced targeted attacks. The motivation of modern attackers can be singular, but the threat landscape continues to become more complex and mixes various threats to increase the likelihood of success. There have certainly been cases where the MSSP was successful at mitigating against an attack but the target Website still went down due to corruption of the underlying application and data. In order to defend networks today, enterprises need to deploy DDoS security in multiple layers, from the perimeter of their network to the provider cloud, and ensure that on-premise equipment can work in harmony with provider networks for effective and robust attack mitigation

In this white paper, John Pescatore of SANS Institute explores how DDoS is used as part of advanced targeted attacks (ATAs) and describes how DDoS detection and prevention tools and techniques can be used against ATAs as well. Today’s DDoS attacks, as damaging as they are, sometimes mask even more threatening and dangerous advanced targeted threats. The good news is that some of the same tools that can detect the footprints of DDoS attacks can also find the telltale signs of ATAs. To be successful, though, enterprises need to coordinate their use of both types of logs and adjust their monitoring parameters correctly. They must also eliminate operational gaps, such as unclear lines of security authority, and limit the use of managed security services that can deprive enterprise security managers of the data they need to detect and stop DDoS attacks and ATAs.

Today’s hosting provider can increase revenue by capitalizing on the growing demand of business customers for hosted online operations—provided, of course, that it can safeguard these critical operations against DDoS-related outages. Using the simple, step-by-step approach described in this paper, providers can model the financial impact of a DDoS attack on their operations and calculate the ROI of an effective DDoS defense solution.

You have to know the threats to stop them. It's not a question of if – but when and how – Internet criminals will get into your network. The Cisco 2014 Annual Security Report highlights the most current security concerns, such as shifts in malware, trends in vulnerabilities, and the revival of distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks.

The modern enterprise is dependent upon connectivity at every level. Every business initiative, whether driven by sales, marketing, manufacturing, finance, R&D or HR, is dependent upon reliable network availability and continuity. Disrupting that continuity is what Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks are all about.

Never have Distributed Denial of Service attacks been more present globally, and it’s time for the healthcare industry to take notice. They have shut down of?ces, caused ransom-like threats, and created an atmosphere where a sophisticated attack could come from almost anywhere at almost any time.

As we continue to move forward into an age of big data, optimization, and shared information through the capabilities of better networking technologies, opportunities have never been greater for using technology to improve the way the government interacts with constituents. However, increasing dependence on web and network services also makes government a tempting target for hackers. Distributed Denial of Service attacks, data breaches, leaks, the risks can be enormous. Recent events have shown us that now more than ever, government servers are getting victimized by well-funded teams of foreign hackers, possibly funded by their government.

In this white paper, we’ll look at Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks, why they pose a threat to healthcare and other networks, and how to protect against them. As we are expected to host more and more key information on our network, we increase our risk at risk for an attack that can shut down vital services or serve to support a malicious actor out to steal private data.

Customers expect to be able do everything online, and won’t tolerate any interruption in service. This expectation inhibit a situation where an attacker is holds your web services hostage, and you have to choose between paying them off or apologizing to a lot of angry customers.
