Recorded Webinar on Ransom DDoS Attacks

DDoS Extortion Campaigns are on the Rise

Link11 and NimbusDDoS explain how the DDoS attackers operate and how cyber extortions affect enterprise IT security

Extortion by cyber criminals is an acute threat to businesses. The attackers are increasingly using ransom DDoS attacks, in which victims are forced to pay a ransom in order to avoid devastating DDoS attacks on their unprotected infrastructure and thus expensive interruptions in business operations. Attackers, sometimes calling themselves "Armada Collective", sometimes "Fancy Bear" or currently "Fancy Lazarus", have been using this approach to attack companies across a variety of industries for several months. With increasing frequency, the Link11 Security Operation Center has had to conduct emergency response operations at companies affected by such Ransom DDoS attacks.

In the pre-recorded webinar, you will learn more about:

  • What a DDoS attack is and how such attacks affect a company.
  • What the motivation of the attackers are and how an extortion attack works from a technical point of view.
  • What the new wave of DDoS extortions by Fancy Lazarus is all about.
  • How companies should react in an emergency situation.
  • How Link11 & NimbusDDOS can help organizations proactively reduce the risk of DDoS extortion.

Zero Outage Era: The show goes on

Link11 and Forrester provide an update on current market developments

In the "zero outage" era, people expect digital services to be available around the clock. The massive increase in home working during the Corona pandemic has stabilized as a trend. In this world of remote access and VPN servers, we are seeing new types of data streams that require different strategies for threat prevention. Legacy infrastructures must also continue to be protected in the transition to zero-trust architectures. At the same time, the threat situation is moving towards the web application layer.

Marc Wilczek, Managing Director Link11 and guest speaker David Holmes, Senior Analyst at Forrester, discussed the current developments in the recording of October 16, 2020:

  • What is the effect of the ECJ ruling on the invalidity of the US Privacy Shield?
  • Why have extortionary attacks using DDoS, among others, increased in recent months?
  • Are hosting providers and telcos in the crosshairs of cybercriminals?
  • What should you consider when it comes to choosing a state-of-the-art protection solution?

Strategic Cyber Defense: Why Time Matters

The faster a security incident is dealt with, the lower its costs.

Time is money: it’s an old axiom in business, but it applies equally to cyberattacks. The more time that elapses until an attack is detected and successfully fend off or stopped, the greater the damage is usually. The so-called "time-to-mitigate" can therefore serve as a benchmark for security measures.

Cyber Resilience in Times of Covid-19

The pandemic is linked to increased cyber risks. This poses a massive challenge to the cyber security of companies, which are forced to increase their digital resilience.

As the corona virus continues to spread, companies are enabling their employees to work remotely and continue all business processes digitally from home. However, this important preventive measure also poses major risks for the cyber security of employees, as well as for the company's entire IT infrastructure. This calls for a consistent strengthening of the highly networked systems and processes.

In the pre-recorded on-demand webinars with security experts from Link11, you will learn which challenges need to be addressed during the coronavirus outbreak and beyond:

  • Successfully mitigating cyber attacks
  • Providing IT security 24/7
  • Remaining operational
