Recommendations

The smooth operation of European businesses depends on the resilience of their online services to DDoS attacks. This puts integrated DDoS attack mitigation strategies in high demand. Another key role in most cybersecurity incidents is the human factor. Thus, raising employees' cyber awareness should be one of the top priorities for European companies, especially in the wake of new GDPR regulations coming into effect in 2018.
