Impacts and Recommendations

  • An increase of higher-volume and application-based DDoS attacks on corporate networks will force CISOs and security teams to find new, proactive solutions for reducing downtime
  • Targeted attacks of DNS registry services and DNS infrastructure will cause serious website outages for network teams and will damage reputations of corporate websites
  • The flawed process of issuing SSL certificates will lead to more fake certificate incidents for security and Web teams, eroding customers' trust in compromised brands
