> The threat of cyber-attacks
> Dear friends,
> We would like to invite you to our upcoming IG webinar, on The threat of cyber-attacks, on Tuesday 30th April at 10:00 GMT, hosted by Mr Vladimir Radunovic, Diplo's cybersecurity expert.
> The recent DDoS attack on Spamhaus, dubbed 'the biggest ever of such kind', shook the Internet community. Not only was it carried out on a very large scale, but the ripple effects created by this attack were similarly alarming. Many different aspects are involved: the costs to mitigate the attacks; the fact that an attack can affect millions of online users directly or indirectly; and the fact that attacks can target not only private entities but important structures like Internet eXchange Points (IXP).
> During the webinar, Mr Radunovic will discuss this attack in detail, as well as other aspects related to cyber-attacks and cyberwarfare:
> How big and real is the threat of cyber-attacks on a similarly large/larger scale?
> Generally, what are the consequences of these attacks?
> How concerned should states and institutions be about these attacks and threats of similar attacks?
> Are there any preventive measures that can be taken by the online community?
> Participants will be able to ask topic-related questions during the webinar. To participate, fill in this registration form. Participation is free; registration is required.
> Looking forward to e-seeing you!
