Evolution of DDoS Attacks

Dan Holden, Director, ASERT, Arbor Networks
We now have seen three waves of DDoS attacks on U.S. banks, and Dan Holden of Arbor Networks says we have seen three distinct shifts in these incidents. What can we expect going forward?

Of primary concern to banking institutions: The DDoS botnet is growing, meaning hacktivists can target more banks and credit unions at one time. And increasingly the attacks are aimed at institutions' application layer. How does this shift influence defensive strategies?

In an interview recorded at RSA Conference 2013, Holden discusses:

  • The evolution of DDoS;
  • Lessons learned from recent attacks;
  • How Arbor helps organizations defend against DDoS.

Holden is director of ASERT for Arbor Networks Inc., a leading provider of network security and management solutions for enterprise and service provider networks, including the vast majority of the world's Internet service providers and many of the largest enterprise networks in use today.
