RSAC Q&A: Fighting Off DDoS Attacks

For RSA Conference 2014, we partnered with IBM to create content that's beneficial to customers of both our companies. As part of the effort, I was interviewed by Mary Karnes, a product manager with IBM Security Services. The ultimate question: how best to respond to DDoS attacks.

Karnes primarily focuses on services that help defend against web attacks (including distributed denial of service) and targeted attacks. Information security has been her focus for more than 13 years, as the leader of a penetration testing team, manager of a security intelligence team, and as a security transformation executive. She holds two patents and a masters degree in telecommunications.
