    What is a DDoS attack?

     

    Basically, a DDoS attack is a coordinated action that targets a system’s resources to prevent them from attending to requests from legitimate users. The quantity of attendants was defined considering an expected demand, right? Now think about these scenarios:

     

    • A number of persons not interested in buying anything, five times larger than the expected demand, arrives at the same time.
    • Each fake customer takes three times longer than normal to see the menu and simply gives up without ordering anything.
    • Unable to buy, or tired of waiting, legitimate users also give up and leave the snack bar.

     

    Basically how DDoS attacks work: either they overwhelm the system’s resource capacity or they lock resources in a useless activity preventing other users from using them and  the most critical aspect of a DDoS attack is that the resources needed to create it are easily available, and are far greater than anything an organization can put up alone. 

     

    Business impacts of DDoS attacks:

     

    Once under a DDoS attack, an organization can suffer losses related to:

     

    Extortion: the organization has to pay for the attack to be interrupted.

    Legal noncompliance: fines and legal processes due to breach of contracts or violations of service level agreements.

     

    Brand damage: loss of confidence due to the perception of customers or shareholders that the organization’s systems are not secure.
