Since the first denial of service (DoS) was launched in 1974, distributed denial of service (DDoS) and other DoS attacks have remained among the most persistent and damaging cyber attacks. These attacks create complex and dynamic challenges for anyone responsible for cybersecurity. Companies now face an ever-evolving threat landscape; DoS, malware, ransomware, and CEO Fraud attacks are plaguing the corporate environment. Hackers have created an entire business model (Crime-as-a-Service) on these types of attacks and are monetizing it. Just about anyone can get on the darkweb and buy any of these attacks for less than a hundred dollars.

In this webcast we will cover an overview of common attacks, major attack types, and tactics, then provide actionable tools and tips for attack detection and mitigation.
