Neustar to host International DDoS Awareness Day

Neustar Inc., a trusted, neutral provider of real-time information services, today announced the launch of the International DDoS Awareness Day, a virtual conference to serve as a significant rallying point for security professionals around the globe.

The virtual conference will be held on October 24, and will feature expert opinions, technical tips and security best practices. With the recent high profile DDoS attacks that have swept the industry, attendees will learn how to protect their organisations against cyber threats and DDoS attacks, as well as receive advice on robust cybersecurity measures, mitigation planning and security strategies.

“Cyber attacks have increased in frequency and complexity over the last few years, with more organisations falling victim to the debilitating effects,” said Rodney Joffe, Senior Vice President and Fellow, Neustar.

“DDoS is a huge part of this, making it essential for business leaders around the world to better understand the cybersecurity landscape, and how best to defend against the ongoing assaults that impact networks, reputations and - ultimately - the business bottom line,” Joffe added.

“Through greater awareness and understanding of cyber security best practices, security professionals in business and government can proactively plan and share knowledge to improve protection and defences,” said Robert Hannigan, former Director of GCHQ.

  • Rodney Joffe, Senior Vice President and Fellow, Neustar

About Neustar

Every day, the world generates roughly 2.5 quadrillion bits of data. Neustar isolates certain elements and analyzes, simplifies and edits them to make precise and valuable decisions that drive results. As one of the few companies capable of knowing with certainty who is on the other end of interactions, we’re trusted by the world’s great brands to make critical decisions some 20 billion times a day. We help marketers send timely and relevant messages to the right people. Because we can authoritatively tell a client exactly who is calling or connecting with them, we make critical real-time responses possible. And the same comprehensive information that enables our clients to direct and manage orders also stops attackers. We know when someone isn’t who they claim to be, which helps stop fraud and denial of service before they’re a problem. Because we’re also an experienced manager of some of the world’s most complex databases, we help clients control their online identity, registering and protecting their domain names, and routing traffic to the correct network address. By linking the most essential information with the people who depend on it, we provide more than 11,000 clients worldwide with decisions—not just data.
