How to Handle a Ransom Related DDoS Attack
Ransom-related distributed denial of service attacks (RDoS) have been gaining popularity as of late. Recent examples span across industries—from banking and financial institutions, to hosting providers, online gaming services and software as a service (SaaS) organizations. When service availability is threatened, companies that fall victim face costly implications.
This guide discusses the rise of ransom-driven DDoS attacks, why you should be concerned, and offers a step-by-step guide to defending your business. Key points we touch on include:
- DDoS attacks being used as smokescreens for more nefarious network infiltrations, such as ransomware.
- The importance of documenting your DDoS resiliency plan.
- Taking a proactive stance instead of being reactive when it comes to preventing ransom-related attacks, will result in better results for your company.
- There is a strong case to be made for real-time DDoS defense.
