This download includes the 6clicks Incident Response playbook for Denial of Service (DOS)

The purpose of a Cyber Security Playbook, or Security Playbook, is to provide all members of an organisation with a clear understanding of their roles and responsibilities regarding cybersecurity – before, during and after a security incident.

A Denial-of-Service (DoS) attack is an attack meant to shut down a machine or network, making it inaccessible to its intended users. DoS attacks accomplish this by flooding the target with traffic or sending it information that triggers a crash. In both instances, the DoS attack deprives legitimate users (i.e. employees, members, or account holders) of the service or resource they expected.

Remember: If you face an incident, follow IRM, take notes, and do not panic. Contact your CERT immediately if needed.

6 steps are defined to handle security Incidents:

  • Preparation: get ready to handle the incident
  • Identification: detect the incident
  • Containment: limit the impact of the incident
  • Remediation: remove the threat
  • Recovery: recover to a normal stage
  • Aftermath: draw up and improve the process
