CISA Releases New DDoS Guidance

15 Nov 2022 10:37 AM | Anonymous

The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center (MS-ISAC) released a joint guideUnderstanding and Responding to Distributed Denial-of-Service Attacks. The Guide will provide organizations with proactive steps to reduce the likelihood and impact of distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks. Depending on the scale of the DDoS attack, the impact may be negligible or severe to include loss or degradation of critical services, loss of productivity, extensive remediation costs, and acute reputational damage. If an DDos incident is suspected, the Guide outlines some the actions that can be taken. Although DDoS attacks are unlikely to impact the confidentiality or integrity of a system and its associated data, they affect availability by interfering with the legitimate use of that system, thereby imposing a cost of time and money, and possibly reputation on the victim’s business. CISA is developing a tabletop exercise for organizations to use to assess their security and resilience to a DDoS attack.
