The year is not even over yet, but there’s little doubt 2020 will be one for the history books!  Please join us for a discussion of key findings from NETSCOUT’s 1st Half 2020 Threat Intelligence Report.

Findings include:

  • Worldwide and regional DDoS attack trends and predictions. (Hint: There was a 25% increase during the pandemic lockdown).
  • The rising complexity of DDoS attacks; a 126% increase in 15+ vector, higher packet-per second, and shorter-lived DDoS attacks.
  • The rise in IoT-based botnets launching DDoS attacks from within our network boundaries.
  • The hidden tax of DDoS attacks that ultimately trickles down to consumers of the internet.
  • Best practices in DDoS attack defense.
