Threat environments are constantly evolving - and networks operators must deal with new challenges on a daily basis. Over the last year, Arbor Networks has seen DDoS attack size jump all the way to 500 Gbps, a 60-fold increase from Arbor's first survey back in 2005, as well as a marked increase in cyber extortion attempts and an influx of advanced threats. These are among the changes that are driving an increased focus on DDoS mitigation best practices and rapid adoption of incident response plans.
Arbor Networks' 11th Annual Worldwide Infrastructure Security Report (WISR) offers a rare view into the most critical security challenges facing today's network operators. This session will review the highlights from the report to help network operators understand the breadth of the threats that they face, gain insight into what their peers are doing to address these threats, and comprehend both new and continuing trends.
This webinar will discuss:
- The mounting challenges ahead for those involved in day-to-day security operations;
- The ways your network infrastructure may be affected by the rapidly changing threat landscape;
- The increasing need to reach out for outside support and collaboration to fight these advanced persistent threats.
