One of the key lessons from the Dyn attack last October is that external service dependencies are part of the DDoS attack surface for IT organizations. While DNS is a fairly obvious external service for attackers to target,  it would be a mistake to think that the story ends there, or even at services connected to your website. Modern enterprises are rapidly digitizing and app-enabling their business processes. In the process, they are creating many external service dependencies that expand their DDoS attack surface.

In this webinar featuring guest speaker Forrester senior analyst Joseph Blankenship, we'll explore the new digital attack surface, how to assess your risk, and how big data analytics helps IT teams improve situational awareness and DDoS detection and mitigation accuracy.

Topics to be covered include:

  • Understanding the expanded digital attack surface
  • Assessing the risk external service dependencies pose to your business
  • Protecting your digital business from DDoS attacks
