    How Do You Know if Your DDoS Mitigation Solution Will Stop a DDoS Attack?

    Organisations spend thousands on DDoS protection, but how do you know if it is really going to work? A DDoS test programme is a safe and controlled way of experiencing a live DDoS attack before the actual event - allowing mitigation systems to be tuned and security staff to gain valuable insight. Join us to hear how three leading organisations including a large bank, The British Library and a critical Internet infrastructure provider successfully implemented DDoS testing. In each case, we will walk you through the set-up, the test parameters, testing procedures, results, and key lessons learned.
