Cyber Threats & Trends: Securing Your Network Pandemic-Style
2020 was certainly interesting in Cybersecurity.
Our new report “Cyber Threats and Trends: Securing Your Network Pandemic-Style” takes a hard look at what happened during that tumultuous year so that we can best protect our networks moving forward.
We examine the rise of extortion through Ransom Distributed Denial of Service (RDDoS) attacks, new threats to DNS traffic and the vulnerabilities that surround web applications.
You’ll learn about the massive swings in online traffic and the increase in size, intensity and volume of attacks. Here are some highlights:
- 154% increase in attacks year-over-year
- Mitigation of a 1.17 Tbps attack (one of the largest on the Internet)
- DNS traffic was 220% higher in the first three quarters of 2020 than in all of 2019
At Neustar, we know how to identify these stealth attacks and how to mitigate them effectively.
We want you to know what to look out for too.
