Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks are an all-too-common reality in today’s Internet landscape and are an escalating global problem. Whether a DDoS attack is motivated by criminal intent, like cyber extortion, or is executed as an extreme form of free expression, the resulting service interruptions can have wide-ranging effects. This program will address the motives behind and targets of DDoS attacks. It will also explore the various ways attacks are carried out, as well as mitigation techniques and the risks of “unintended consequences.” The goal is to foster a discussion and provide a platform for developing a framework of best practices to mitigate DDoS attacks.
