The DDoS attack that Dyn, Inc. experienced a couple weeks ago seems to have freaked some people out. But for those who have never put thought into whether or not a DDoS attack is a high-risk scenario for their organization, a little freak out might not be such a bad thing. After all, a big part of implementing a crisis-ready culture involves regularly asking the right crisis-related questions, and taking a proactive approach towards crisis prevention and preparedness.
This was the inspiration behind this week’s #crisisready video.
- Does a DDoS attack present a crisis for your organization?
- How can you know for sure?
- If it does, what can you do about it now, before faced with this type of potentially damaging incident?
I answer these questions and more in this week’s video. Take a look!
