MSI Strategy & Tactics Talk Ep. 20: Denial of Service Attacks

We haven’t seen anywhere near the thresholds that could happen with massive scale bot-nets. I think it’s clear that bot-nets are the future weapon of DoS and we’ll continue to see that until somebody takes away the capability. In addition, mobile devices are going to experience an increase in DoS attacks. – Brent Huston, MSI CEO and Security Evangelist

Denial of Service attacks were alive and well in 2011 as seen with WordPress and MasterCard. What have we learned from these types of attacks?  In this episode of MSI Strategy & Tactics, the techs discuss what DoS attacks and how organizations can respond. Take a listen! Discussion questions include:

  • Organizations have been dealing with denial of service attacks for a while now, what lessons should they have learned?
