DDoS attacks have dominated the charts in terms of frequency, sophistication, and geo-distribution over the last year. Ransom DDoS attacks are also surging, crippling organizations' network infrastructure and taking them offline while demanding ransom in bitcoin. Unlike ransomware attacks, these ransom DDoS attacks do not even require the hacker to access an organization’s internal systems before they can be carried out.

There are no signs of DDoS attacks going away anytime soon. How do organizations ensure that their Internet assets are protected against threats of any size or kind?

In this webinar, you’ll learn about:

  • Key Q2 2021 DDoS attack trends
  • Ransom DDoS threats — and what you can do if you are affected
  • Steps organizations can take to make the impact of DDoS attacks a thing of the past
