From SC Magazine

"An alarming 36% of businesses have yet to develop a cyber attack response plan, according to a new report by F5 Networks.

F5 Networks conducted research at the InfoSec conference in London this week and discovered that some of the top concerns for IT security pros are network attacks (19%), malware (18%), application data breaches (17%) and DDoS attacks (16%). The results of the survey were collected from 274 adults at the conference from 7 June through 8 June.

DDoS attacks remain common as 35% of respondents believe their business have suffered or likely suffered an attack. Firewalls (33%), hybrid mitigation (17%) and web application firewalls or WAF (14%) were noted as the top primary solutions for DDoS attacks.

The types of DDoS attacks that respondents listed as the biggest threats were ‘blended DDoS' attacks (26%), ‘application level' (25%), and ‘volumetric-based' (19%). Considering the growing number of cyber ransom-style attacks reported these days, extortion-driven attacks were surprisingly the least popular threat (15%).”
