  • Understand the different roles and responsibilities that are required in an organisation to respond effectively to a crisis
  • Explore the threshold between an emergency and a crisis
  • Understand why emergencies can be managed but crises need leadership
  • Recognise the interplay between different emergency and crisis management capabilities an organisation has in its toolbox and the dangers of developing them in organisational silos

WORKSHOP: What’s the business risk of a DDoS attack that lasts less than 10 minutes?

  • Real-world insight from Corero’s newly published research that most DDoS attacks are modest in scale and short in duration. In fact, the trend is that attacks are becoming even shorter
  • With so many attacks lasting only a few minutes, the key question is are these short duration attacks anything to worry about?
  • This live demonstration will illustrate the impact that these smaller attacks can have on service availability and how to defend against them
  • What are the business risks and penalties for those who fail to invest in adequate defences
