Banking DDoS Florida

Infosight Security Awareness

Finally, more businesses are talking about banking DDoS in Florida attacks, as several  have fallen prey to in last year. This is an increasing threat to your business, and to your customers financial accounting.

Banking DDoS in Florida attacks are coming from other countries, and third parties. An attack can affect the consumer online banking services of your business, unauthorized transactions, loss or destruction of vital data, account takeovers, computer viruses and other malicious events.

Expert security reports state that there is an increase in banking DDoS in Florida. The cybercriminals that are conducting these illegal attacks, are getting more sophisticated with their technology, with every successful attack.

Mostly large businesses have been affected, but now, these cybercriminals are targeting smaller businesses. The small to medium size business either does not have the funds to properly secure their systems, or are plain and simple clinging to their old security systems. Do not leave your business wide open to an attack; get yourself prepared, by putting in place a higher security level of protection.

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.
