Question 4
Imagine that you are an information security consultant for a company that does a lot of electronic
commerce. You are asked to write a report about denial of service attacks, or DOS (including
distributed DOS attacks) so that the senior management can assess the risks posed by this attack
to the companys information security.
Write a 250 - 350 words report based on (at least) three sources. You must properly reference the
sources.
Write in your own words, do NOT simply copy or re-write from the existing source like
internet/book/journal etc.
Your report should be neither too technical nor vague and should cover the threats posed by DOS
attacks and tools/strategies for detecting and containing the impact of DOS/DDOS attacks.
