    Recorded April 5, 2018

  • DDoS: Aged Protocols are Fuelling

    Speaker:
    Martin McKeay, Senior Security Advocate, Akamai Technologies

    Summary:
    They say old protocols never die. Okay, no one really says that, but it's what happens in reality. If you look around a little, you can still find organisations with token ring networks while dial-up modems still account for a small, but significant part of Internet usage worldwide. And then there are the current protocols that simply never get updated. DNS and NTP are staples of the Internet that are absolutely necessary.

  • The Known and Unknown Costs of DDoS

    Speaker:
    Martin McKeay, Senior Security Advocate, Akamai Technologies

    Summary:
    Criminals are increasingly turning to cyber-crime as their method of choice, thanks to the increased accessibility provided by numerous automated attack tools and 'for hire' subscription services. The number of Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks against organisations' websites, for example, are increasing rapidly and the true business costs are often unknown. In addition to the more obvious impacts associated with the lost web transactions associated with downtime, there are also reputational and other ephemeral costs that are harder to quantify. 

    In this webinar, we'll be examining both the monetary and reputational costs of an attack on your infrastructure, as well as some of the measures you can take to combat these attacks. With data drawn from Akamai's State of the Internet Report, we'll be talking about real world examples of attacks and how these could affect your business.
