This blog is dedicated to analyses and research of cyber security topics and the protection from DDoS attacks provided by the Link11 Security Operation Center (LSOC).

The next few days will mark the anniversary of the first known case of a cyberattack method that continues to keep companies of all sizes and industries on their toes.

Every third company in Germany became a victim of cyber-attacks in 2018. This is the result of the Cyber Security Survey conducted by the Federal Office for Information Security. In almost 90% of the cases, the attackers were successful and caused business interruptions. This, in turn, produced costs for forensic investigations and the restoration of IT systems.
The IT security provider is significantly expanding its activities in the media sector. The production, broadcast and IT company CBC is using Link11’s DDoS protection with immediate effect to secure its Internet access and the on-premise infrastructure that is used, among other things, for the B2B traffic of Mediengruppe RTL Deutschland.Read More

The implications of DDoS attacks have become increasingly severe in recent months. The consequences are no longer limited to online service outages in a few industries such as banking, hosting, mobility or eHealth, but can now paralyze an entire country, as the incidents in Cambodia have shown.Read More

Cybercrime on the rise: Average attack volumes grew by 194%, and hyper-scale volumes by 150% year-on-year, shows Link11’s Q4 2018 DDoS statistics
Organizations get hit by DDoS attacks all the time. Becoming the victim of an attack is still often considered a taboo subject and the number of unreported cases is high. There are, however, incidents made public every now and then showing the devastating power of cyber-attacks and why a comprehensive protection is so important.Read More
