NOTE: I have zero financial relationship with Arbor, don't even hold their stock. However, I have seen them in the field for 20 years, they must be doing something right. DDoS is becoming a significant issue and it is a thorny problem. Worse, it takes money and outside resources to deal with it. Worse again, if you ignore it and they come down on your organization so that customers cannot interact with you, your organization may be seriously damaged in terms of revenue and customer relationship; and that is sugar coating it. So, it is time to go to school to get your arms around the problem. I found this easy to watch set of videos. As you watch them, think about how to take the key points and share them with management at your organization.
History of DDoS. How did we get in such a mess?
One size does not fit all with DDoS, what are the basic forms and their implications?
DDoS has been around for at least 30 years, how could it possibly be an advanced attack?
Can you give me an example of a potential solution that does not require solely counting on a cloud provider?
