Companies operating in the critical path of internet traffic are constantly exposed to DDoS attacks of all types and scales. Ideally, the smaller and more mundane attacks are mitigated automatically. But because scale can vary and attacks can progress dynamically as attackers get creative, operations teams need to be ready to respond.

In this talk, we will share what we have learned by running war game-style DDoS preparedness training at NS1 and how the drills can be used as a means of strengthening team, tools, and technology around DDoS mitigation.
