Banking DDoS Atlanta

Infosight Security Awareness

Since the end of 2012, there have been an extremely high amount of banking DDoS in Atlanta attacks. With every new attack, the cybercriminals are becoming more sophisticated in their methods.

They are now starting to expand their banking DDoS in Atlanta targets. During these attacks, on line services have been interrupted, along with looting money. Although, there has been no reported loss of customer data, these attacks have disrupted and inconvenienced their customers.

There are many security experts that feel new banking DDoS in Atlanta attacks may be motivated by money. Because each new attack, by cybercriminals, have been more advanced than the ones before.

The majority of larger businesses have prepared themselves from future banking DDoS in Atlanta attacks, but there are smaller to medium size businesses that have not updated their security measures. Mostly due to the fact that they have fewer resources at their disposal and, as a result, have a harder time defending against banking DDoS attacks. So, they have been clinging to old defense methods, leaving themselves open for attacks.

The problem with banking DDoS attacks
U.S. banks have been pounded by wave after wave of banking Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks that began in late 2012. Banking DDoS attacks increased in volume, frequency, and sophistication in 2013. With each new wave, the Islamic hacktivist group “Cyber Fighters of Izz ad-Din al-Qassam,” shifted their target from major financial institutions to smaller community banks and credit unions, hoping they would be less prepared.

Banking DDoS attacks are evolving
Since the inception of the banking DDoS attacks, the largest banks have become well prepared, but many smaller community banks and credit unions remain vulnerable because they have fewer resources at their disposal and, as a result, have a harder time defending against banking DDoS attacks. With each attack; however, these groups also increase their knowledge about how to make the next assault more effective.

Defending against a banking DDoS attack
Too many organizations still cling to old defense methods, despite having been let down by them during a real banking DDoS attack. Strategies that once worked to defend against banking DDoS attacks, such as a firewall or router designed to handle DDoS attacks, relying on an ISP or a content distribution network (CDN) to soak up the attack, or simply installing an appliance to eliminate or lessen the impact will no longer suffice.
