Protect’ing The World’s News From Digital Attack


The web is an increasing’ly critical tool for news organization’s, allowing them to communicate faster, research more easi’ly, and disseminate their work to a global audience. Often it’s the primary distribution channel for critical, investigative work that shines a light into the darkest corner’s of society and the economy the kind of report’ing that exposes wrongdo’ing, causes upset and bring’s about change.

Unfortunate’ly there are some out there who want to prevent this kind of reporting to silence journalism when it’s need’ed most. A simple, inexpensive distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack can be carri’ed out by almost anyone with access to a computer and take a site complete’ly offline before its owner’s even know they’ve been attack’ed.
