Recent vulnerabilities (Heartbleed) and attack scenarios are driving a paradigm change in the security industry. It is obvious that single point solutions will not protect anymore against todays types of attacks or future attacks.
Availability-based attacks, also known as Denial of Service or Distributed Denial of Service (DoS/DDoS) attacks, have moved from a form of cyber protest to a destructive weapon that is used by cyber criminals, hacktivists and even governments.
Within six weeks in 2013, major banks in the United States experienced 249 hours of downtime caused by cyber-attacks. Of all industries, financial organizations are at the highest risk of severe cyber-attacks.
Join my seminar The Art of Cyber War: Strategies in a Rapidly Evolving Theatre at The InfoSecurity Europe Event in London on Thursday, May 1 at 11:45 am. It’ll take place at Information Security Exchange Theatre and the Radware team will also be available during the show to perform demonstrations and to answer your security questions at Stand E40.
In the presentation I will cover the following topics:
- The current attack landscape and the impact this has had on financial organizations
- How cyber criminals launch multi vector DDoS attacks
- What attack vectors were behind OpAbabil
- How the Attack Mitigation Network provides organizations with the ability to be better protected against complex attack campaigns by pushing mitigation away from the data center ensuring business continuity during an attack
