Learn how to protect against a Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack in just one day in central London. DDoS Defence will educate you on the growing threat and consequences of a DDoS attack. In just one day you'll:

  1. Understand a DDoS attack, how it's executed and the implications to your business
  2. Experience demonstrations of DDoS attacks and their effects in real-time
  3. Learn the tools to detect, analyse and mitigate DDoS attacks

You'll receive five free EC-Council CSCU (Certified Secure Computer User) exam vouchers worth £495 with every ticket you buy. The CSCU exam is a great way for you to benchmark the IT security knowledge of you and your staff. You can also maintain your IT certification with CPEs earned from at least seven hours of learning on this one-day DDOS course.

You'll also receive a £299 training voucher to be used against Firebrand courses in 2017.

The real costs of a DDoS attack

The impact of a successful DDoS attack has devastating and long-lasting effects. Having your systems forced offline can cost upwards of £100,000 per hour. After which 52% of your customers will lose trust in your organisation as a result of your systems outage. In the end, the long term total cost to your business averages out at £1.2 million in damages.

It’s not just small businesses that need to be worried about DDoS. Escalating attack sizes have forced some of the world’s largest websites offline. The BBC, MI5, HSBC and PayPal are all recent victims of successful Denial of Service attacks. PayPal experienced damages of £3.5 million, with 100 workers spending three weeks repairing the damage following the attack.

The problem is only getting worse. DDoS attacks have increased 125% over the past year. Every day more than 2,000 attacks are now observed worldwide by Arbor Networks. Amplified by a 30% increase in attack size, it’s unsurprising that 1/3 of all system outages are now the direct result of a DDoS attack.

Learn the skills to defend against DDoS attacks, before it’s too late.
