About this talk

The threat of Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks is a growing problem for mission-critical websites, such as eCommerce shops, SaaS applications, gaming forums, and University portals; in addition, politically or artistically important organizations and journalists can be especially at risk of attack, due to the nature of their website content. The company CloudFlare delivers DDoS protection to over 4,000,000 websites globally, from personal blogs to large enterprises, while also offering a free protection program for respected free speech, public interest, and civil society organizations, called “Project Galileo”. Join Larry Collins, Product Manager at HOSTING, and special guest, James Askham, Solutions Engineer at CloudFlare, on October 20th at 3 PM EST for the webinar Hacktivism Culture: DDoS 101. During the live event, they will go over: •What a DDoS attack is from a technical perspective •The most common types of DDoS attacks •Best practices for mitigating against these attacks and how CloudFlare’s “Project Galileo” protects political and artistic organizations.
