Mirai was just the beginning: What to Expect in 2017

Robin Schmitt, General Manager, APAC at Neustar | Dec. 16, 2016
In terms of Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) activity, 2016 was a year like no other, truly unprecedented from start to finish

As the cybersecurity landscape is constantly evolving, protection solutions must also adapt to anticipate attackers' modus operandi. Businesses rarely hold back when it comes to investment in CCTV, 24-hours security guards and specialist insurance policies to reduce losses and deter theft. They even accept the fact that criminals will steal from them someday and thus, put systems in place to help mitigate the damage when they fall victim. So, why should their attitude towards cyberspace be any different?

If the past is prologue, then 2017 will offer another opportunity for bad actors to devise new and creative ways to launch dangerous DDoS attacks. Come what may, we can count on the cybersecurity game of cat and mouse to continue into the foreseeable future.
