2006-11-13 UK, London Blocking Denial of Service Attacks on the Internet

(Communications Research Network)
This workshop will bring together a range of experts to discuss technical, legal, regulatory and contractual measures that would have a real effect in reducing Denial of Service attacks on-line. Denial of Service attacks, where high-profile websites are overwhelmed with a flood of traffic from compromised machines on the Internet, are becoming a real problem for UK business and government. Organised criminals are getting involved, using the threat of attacks to extort large sums of money from a range of organisations in the UK and overseas.
