Dear Fellow (ISC)² Sacramento Chapter Member,

Our next chapter event will be held on May 18th from 5:30PM - 9:00PM at Red Door Escape Room, 12401 Folsom Blvd. Suite 115, Rancho Cordova, Ca. 95742. This event is being hosted by NetScout. See event details below.

Join NETSCOUT as we walk through the latest trends in Adaptive DDoS Attacks and Defense to learn about the threat landscape and how best to defend your organizations.

DDoS Attacks continue to bombard organizations at a staggering rate with no apparent end in sight. More than half of the countries in the world see an attack daily and between five and ten percent of every active network are on the receiving end of an attack. These attacks range from volumetric with dozens of different attack vectors to direct botnet-based attacks consuming internet bandwidth and disrupting vital operations everywhere by taking down key services and systems. As the world continues to become even more interconnected digitally, adversaries evolve and ramp up operations to target emergent critical infrastructure like satellite telecommunications and web-conferencing tools that make a distributed, remote workforce and education possible. Meanwhile, hacktivists and nation-states escalated usage of DDoS as a geopolitical tool to sow confusion, degrade morale, and prevent access to important online assets.
