Speaker: John Graham-Cumming, CTO, Cloudflare
It's common to see headlines about major hacks and enormous DDoS attacks, but what's behind the headlines? How much DDoS activity is there on a day to day basis? What does an attempt to break into a web site look like? Who gets attacked? How can companies protect themselves against DDoS attacks? And is it possible to stay up to date with all the latest vulnerabilities?
John will cover these topics and cut through the hype in a session based on the real attacks Cloudflare sees against it's almost 8 million web properties, apps, APIs and sites.
The event will bring together professionals across many industries for an evening of open discussion. It will provide a unique opportunity to interact with a dynamic group and share knowledge in a relaxed setting.
