Data Loss Prevention (DLP) is a set of tools and practices that seek to avoid a damaging data breach and loss of confidential or critical information. Typically this focuses attention on the environment perimeter, in the form of email or web access and also endpoint control.
Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks are one of the largest threats in today’s cyber landscape. They are very difficult to defend against and are potentially very costly. They remain a prime attack tool for hacktivists and other groups, and are also a counter measure tool for the White Hats. Indeed, a unit of GCHQ – The Joint Threat Intelligence Group (JTRIG) use DDoS attacks against both Anonymous and LulzSec ICQ chat rooms.
