DDoS: Preparing for massive attacks and new regulations

Resource description

In a world with 31 billion devices already connected to the Internet, and a seemingly unstoppable march towards connecting everything and everyone, the DDoS attack surface is becoming practically infinite. Complex BotNets that recruit all types of IoT devices are leading to DDoS attacks nearing the 2Tbps mark, with no limit in sight. While there are a limited number of service providers that need to worry about mitigating a 2Tbps attack today, there is a new set of regulations (GDPR) requiring companies to guarantee security and availability, and GDPR will apply to companies of all sizes.
