Evaluating & Measuring DDoS Risk during a COVID 19 Era

A DDoS attack could be a ruse to distract your focus from other key processes, such as fraudulent transactions, or outright destruction of data. "At Alliant we wanted the brains behind DDoS mitigation and that's what Prolexic gives us." said Bill Podborny, Chief Security Officer, Alliant Credit Union.

The number of DDoS attacks instantly mitigated via the Prolexic platform has increased exponentially over the past four years. Akamai mitigates DDoS attacks against its Prolexic platform via proactive mitigation controls, in 0 seconds and with no customer impact. But, what about DDoS attacks in the COVID-19 era?

Join Dennis Birchard, Akamai’s Principal Cloud Security Architect, to learn more about:

•Recent DDoS Attack Trends Q1-2020
•How does Prolexic protect Akamai customers and why does it matter
•Mitigation Strategies re: Proactive vs Reactive controls
•Work from home and how our customers have changed their risk
•How to interpret DDoS industry mitigation SLAs

  • Is your MFA secure or security theater? Mar 17 2021 5:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Steve Winterfeld, Advisory CISO, and Dan Hall, Principal Product Manager, Akamai
    Join us as we talk about some of the trends that highlight the importance of multi-factor authentication (MFA) for protecting your workforce. While MFA is more widely deployed to better protect your applications and resources, these trends also highlight the inherent weaknesses of today’s MFA solutions.

    We will review a strong authentication factor based on the FIDO2 standards that present its own challenges in balancing security against cost and productivity. Finally, we will address how to ensure you choose a modern authentication framework tailored to your business model and needs to develop a secure, cost-effective, and low-friction solution.

    What you will learn:
    - The critical role of MFA (and the factor you use) within your cybersecurity program
    - The advantages of a strong authentication factor based on FIDO2
    - Solving the risk management challenges of security vs. cost and productivity
    - How to select a secure, cost-effective MFA solution

  • Taking SASE From Buzzword to Plan Recorded: Mar 3 2021 16 mins
    Steve Winterfeld, Advisory CISO
    Analyst frameworks can be a great resource, but to provide value, most have to be tailored to fit each company. Gartner’s secure access service edge (SASE) is a great framework example. It is gaining traction within the industry because it drives benefits like reducing vendor management overhead and complexity, but because different companies will have their own priorities, the framework doesn’t provide a set solution.

    This talk will map out how to develop your requirements, conduct a gap analysis, lock in a plan, and get buy-in for your SASE-based program.

    You will gain:
    • An understanding of the SASE framework and its benefits
    • Step-by-step detail about how to operationalize the framework
    • Tools to help you develop the strategy and business case

    Join us for a quick but actionable overview of how to integrate the protection of your edge!

    - DDoS (both Blackmail and Mega Attacks)
    - Formjacking / Skimming (i.e., Magecart)
    - Credential Stuffing (Account Takeover)
    - Malware C2 (Domain Generation Algorithms)

    Join us as we share real-world examples our customers experience every day and the evolving defensive techniques we use to mitigate the risk these attacks represent.

  • Protecting Your Money for Nothing and Your Streams for Free Recorded: Jan 30 2021 13 mins
    Akamai Technologies
    Piracy has been with us since the silent movie era. So has enforcement. So your CFO isn’t crazy to ask, “What’s the ROI on fighting?” This session at the Media & Entertainment Services Alliance (MESA) 2020 Media & Entertainment Day surveyed the academic literature on that very question, exploring concepts like “displacement” as well as how the bad guys make money. If you’re trying to figure out how to measure piracy and fund your defenses, download the video.

    Leading the session is Akamai’s Shane Keats, who analyzes security challenges through a video-centric lens. Prior to working at Akamai, Shane was a product marketing leader at security company McAfee and a business news journalist with CNN Moneyline.

  • The Truth About Piracy Recorded: Jan 30 2021 37 mins
    Akamai Technologies
    Piracy has been with us since the days of silent movies — but as technology develops, criminals always find new weaknesses to exploit and make a profit. In this session, we will explore the challenges associated with tackling video piracy, how technology innovation can help (or not), and whether the industry should (and could) do more.
  • Marshaling Your Forces to Fight Piracy Recorded: Jan 28 2021 53 mins
    Akamai Technologies
    Video piracy is as much of a threat as it’s ever been not only to revenues of rights distributors but also jobs in the creative industry and the viability of licensing windows. In order to tackle the issue and support their legal activities, rights owners and distributors recognize that they need to consider a more complete anti-piracy posture across their business. This includes implementing technologies to provide real time situational awareness, adopting a zero trust approach within production and using technology that can identify and mitigate rights infringements in real time. In this session we will be looking at some of the most recent technical developments in the fight against video piracy and how the industry is starting to turn the tide against criminals with improved situational awareness.

  • [state of the internet]/security Credential Stuffing: Attacks and Economies Recorded: Jan 21 2021 32 mins
    Patrick Sullivan, Senior Director, Security Technology & Strategy Akamai and Shane Keats, Director of Global Industry Mktg.
    Webinar: Credential stuffing targets media

    January 2019 saw the public release of a massive collection of private credentials — more than 25 billion email address and password combinations. Though much of the user information was from older data breaches, the audacious data dump reflects the reality that the theft, abuse, and sale of username/password combinations is a thriving criminal business.

    Media organizations, gaming companies, and the entertainment industry are among the biggest targets of credential stuffing attacks. The people behind these attacks realize the value of an account, whether it’s to a streaming site, a game, or someone’s social media account. And they’re willing to do whatever it takes to steal them.

    During this webinar, we’ll share the recent research that digs into this trend, which has significant impacts for gaming, video, and entertainment companies.

    You’ll learn:

    - Why cheap tools and free tutorials lower the bar of entry for would-be criminals
    - How malicious actors turn data breaches into substantial profits on darknet markets
    - What businesses can do to detect and prevent credential stuffing attacks

  • State of the Internet Security: Loyalty for Sale — Retail and Hospitality Fraud Recorded: Dec 3 2020 54 mins
    Martin McKeay - Editorial Dir., Tony Lauro – Dir. Sec. Strategy & Patrick Sullivan - CTO, Global Sec. at Akamai
    Loyalty programs are a big business — for criminals. Account takeover attacks lead to the theft and sale of rewards. And while consumer password reuse plays a major enabling role in this criminal enterprise, brands that don’t protect their customers still take the hit to their reputations.

    For our new report, State of the Internet / Security: Loyalty for Sale — Retail and Hospitality Fraud, we took a deep dive into this phenomenon. Join us as we discuss the findings, including:

    - Attack data that demonstrates the criminal appeal of loyalty programs and the companies who offer them
    - New attack patterns and trends that emerged in two years of credential stuffing, web application, and DDoS attack data
    - How the retail, travel, and hospitality industry unwittingly made themselves into more lucrative targets during the pandemic lockdowns
    - The frighteningly low cost for stolen rewards, travel packages, and a complete customer database
    - What you can personally do to protect your own loyalty rewards from account takeover and theft
    - How brands can protect their customers and their reputations
