Guest View: 4 things banks need to know about DDoS attacks

Avi Rembaum and Daniel Wiley | July 4, 2013
Financial institutions must not only have plans in place, they should also consider a broad set of defensive tools that combine on-premise technologies and cloud-based scrubbing services.

Right now, information-sharing consists of friends talking to friends. Information sharing needs to evolve into an automated system where organisations can log in to a solution and see correlated and raw log data that provide clues into attacks that have ended and that are in progress. Such systems could also be used to share attack intelligence and distribute protections. An industry information-sharing capability would help elevate financial services companies' abilities to cope with DDoS activity and bring the industry as a whole to a new level of preparedness.

Avi Rembaum is director of 3D consulting and Daniel Wiley is a senior security consultant, both at Check Point Software Technologies.
