A candid conversation with a covert cybersecurity expert

Arelion operates the world’s #1 Internet backbone, transporting over 65% of the global internet routing table every day. This gives us a unique insight into the current state of security, directly seeing the impact of major social and geopolitical events on the overall safety of the internet.

In this webinar, one of Arelion’s security experts is anonymously interviewed to provide his perspective on current security trends and developments, including an overview of the different types of DDoS attacks we see in our network. The audience will walk away with new knowledge on everything from the efficiency of today’s DDoS mitigation tools, the most common security questions we receive from customers, how operators and enterprises should think about their security practices, and much more.
