DDoS mega attacks blitzing businesses - do you need help?

If you're a regular reader of these pages, you'll know that we have talked before about the size of Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) going up in terms of bandwidth.

However, a new report has revealed the extent to which this is the case - and it makes for shocking reading for business owners and anyone who relies heavily on the internet as part of their operations.

Retailer praised for disaster recovery response

If you want a good example of how to get a disaster recovery plan right, then you might want to look towards online fashion retailer Asos.

In late June 2014, the store's distribution centre in Barnsley was hit by a huge fire that was believed to have been started deliberately.

This damaged 20 per cent of the stock and became so serious that Asos was forced offline, unable to trade for fear it wouldn't be able to fulfil orders placed.

Extreme weather shows flooding isn't just a winter problem

British people usually heave a sigh of relief when summer finally arrives and the prospect of some better - if not exactly balmy - weather is on the cards.

However, while we have been enjoying some beautiful days lately, our climate and its weather is getting decidedly more extreme than it used to be.

Take flooding, for example. This is often viewed as a winter problem, coming about as a result of snow melting and more precipitation than usual falling on saturated ground.

How DDoS is no longer just about disruption

If you're a regular reader of these pages, you'll hopefully know a little bit about distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks by now - you can check out our archived articles if you're not sure.

However, there's a distinct possibility that many of you are unaware of the devastating impact such incidents can have, particularly since an increasing number of them are no longer just about disruption.

How the cloud has revolutionised business continuity

We read an interesting report recently on the topic of 'the cloud', demonstrating how it has revolutionised our lives, yet remained almost anonymous in doing so.

A poll of 2,000 UK consumers was carried out by Juniper and discovered that 21.8 per cent insisted they either don't use the cloud or don't know what it is.
