|What is DDoS? (Show Answer)|
|Distributed Denial-of-Service, or DDoS, flood websites, web servers, internet applications and other online resources with huge amounts of garbage traffic. This sudden increase adds a significant amount of strain on the target, either slowing it down or shutting it down completely. According to a recent report by NexusGuard, denial-of-service attacks have increased with 29% since Q2 2017.|
|How long can a DDoS attack last? (Show Answer)|
|Denial-of-service attacks are increasing in both size and in complexity. The NexusGuard report indicates an average attack size of 4.10Gbps in Q2017, while a 500% increase to 26Gbps has been noted in Q2 2018. As such, DDoS attacks have also increased in duration – from a few hours to more than a week (the current record being 12 days).|
|What is the impact of a DDoS attack? (Show Answer)|
Although downtime is the most obvious risk associated with DDoS attacks, a more severe loss is the financial impact brought about by inevitable reputational damage. This can translate into a loss of a few thousand to hundreds of thousands per hour. Legal consequences are an often overlooked risk – capable of exacerbating reputational damage and induce crippling financial penalties.
