CSI - Discovering the DDoS Criminal’s MO and What Stops Them - ICIT Virtual Briefing

This event qualifies for 1 CPEs

Briefing Summary:

When it comes to DDoS crimes, there’s no such thing as questions, just hidden answers. This virtual briefing will provide a crime scene investigation of today’s DDoS criminals. Answering questions such as how are attacks launched and why aren’t they getting detected and stopped in time? The panelists will continue the investigation by turning the lens to the victims, why do companies with best-in-class mitigation tools still stuffer DDoS attack damage?


DDoS attacks are on the rise with researchers finding consistent increases in attacks and attack durations. Our expert panel for this virtual briefing will discuss the current trends in DDoS attacks and how cybercriminals are adapting the malware and tactics to further exploit DDoS attacks across public and private sectors.
