Cyber Security Disruptive Technologies Theatre

Thu 6th Oct 13:40 to 14:10

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.

What you will take away from this session

  • You will learn about DDoS attacks and the real-world defences being used to defeat them - and whether they work or not
  • You will find out that there’s more to a DDoS test than large amounts of traffic
  • You will find out what three leading organisations learnt from the test including expected and unexpected results – and how they benefitted
  • You will take away actionable guidance for your own DDoS attack response plan
