DDoS attacks have grown in sophistication. But so have organizations' dependencies on the services disrupted by DDoS, says Corero's Ashley Stephenson. How should security leaders respond to protect their critical services?
When it comes to DDoS attacks, the hacktivists get all the headlines, but there is a robust service industry behind the scenes, supporting these sophisticated strikes, says Darren Anstee of Arbor Networks.
Organizations across all industry sectors understand the importance of information security. But turning security awareness into meaningful action - that's the challenge that many midsized entities face, says Sophos' Nick Bray.
Cloud-based advanced threat protection helps organizations detect sophisticated malware that is able to bypass existing security measures. The key is to start with the premise that the network is already infected, says Seculert's Dudi Matot.
"If you're not doing the right things on managing vulnerabilities, it doesn't really matter what other kinds of sophisticated things you do - that's the baseline for security," says BeyondTrust's Marc Maiffret.
