Moreover, from the report, the number of DDoS attacks are increasing in the large scale, where 50% of the attacks are more or less about 10 gigabits per seconds. While on the other hand, only 15% of the attacks are over there with the least 50 Gbps. The recorded ratio of the attacks is estimating double of the last year recorded ratio.
The research includes the 1,010 organizations and only 849 organizations were hacked. The report didn’t mention the hackers attack the specific industry. It’s not a difficult for a skilled hacker to hack the organization by getting the DDoS attacks. However, the hackers are now hacking all industries.
