Overly Quoted on Impact of Expansive Distributed Denial of Service Attacks

12 March 2018 CSO News
Partner Mike Overly was quoted in a CSO article, “DDoS Explained: How Distributed Denial of Service Attacks Are Evolving,” about how the risk of DDoS attacks can now expand past a targeted business to its third-party partners and vendors.

“Businesses are no longer merely concerned with DDoS attacks on themselves, but attacks on the vast number of business partners, vendors and suppliers on whom those businesses rely,” Overly said. “One of the oldest adages in security is that a business is only as secure as its weakest link. In today’s environment (as evidenced by recent breaches), that weakest link can be, and frequently is, one of the third parties.”
