Global cybersecurity and digital privacy company, Kaspersky has highlighted some measures organisations and individuals can stay protected against Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks, which it disclosed increased by nearly 24% in the third quarter of 2021.
- Maintain web resource operations by assigning specialists who understand how to respond to DDoS attacks.
- Validate third-party agreements and contact information, including those made with Internet service providers. This helps teams quickly access agreements in case of an attack.
- Implement professional solutions to safeguard your organisation against DDoS attacks. For example, Kaspersky DDoS Protection combines Kaspersky’s extensive expertise in combating cyberthreats and the company’s unique in-house developments.
- It’s important to know your traffic. It’s a good option to use network and application monitoring tools to identify traffic trends and tendencies. By understanding your company’s typical traffic patterns and characteristics, you can establish a baseline to more easily identify unusual activity that is symptomatic of a DDoS attack.
- Have a restrictive Plan B defensive posture ready to go. Be in a position to rapidly restore business-critical services in the face of a DDoS attack.
