Following the news that Luxembourg state’s Internet infrastructure has been the target of a malicious cyber attack, Ben Herzberg, Security Research Group Manager at Imperva Incapsula commented below.

Ben Herzberg, Security Research Group Manager at Imperva Incapsula:

Ben Herzberg“Organizations need to prepare for DDoS attacks, and know ahead of time what they will do when an attack hits them. DDoS is a family with different types of attacks, so organization need to know they have them all covered. Once they apply protective measures against all types of DDoS attacks, and test the mitigation on their live network, they should make sure that any architecture change they make is also reflected in their security architecture.

Currently, the amount of resources which an attacker needs in order to inflict severe damage with a DDoS attack is extremely low. However, organizations can and should have a strong mitigation strategy so they can remain safe even when being attacked.”
