Best Practices for Preventing and Responding to Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) Attacks

Rachel Kartch

"Something that people will ask me is, How can I keep somebody from attacking me? The answer is, go off the internet. If you want to prevent somebody from trying to attack you, unplug your website and go home, and do not ever check your email, and do not worry about it...I will not say this is a solved problem, but the good news is that there are a lot of tools available so that people can protect themselves at least from being completely overwhelmed or protect themselves from being completely out of business.  "
