16 June Clinic:

In this clinic we will play a recording of a recent attack against a Jisc member. It will show the attack details and what a DDoS analyst looks for when analysing alerts. The recording will also show the ease at which an attacker can change attack methods. There will be an explanation of how the DDoS system is working to block the attacks shown.


Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks can affect any organisation and in the current time with many services being served remotely, the risk of downtime is now even greater. Are you aware of what your organisation can do to help mitigate such attacks?

This live DDoS mitigation clinic is an open forum to discuss queries relating to DDoS mitigation/attacks, with the opportunity to also share experiences with other organisations.

The clinics generally run on the second Thursday of each month.

Session topics and leads

We'll take questions on DDoS related topics with sessions being lead by a member of the CSIRT defensive services and/or security services teams.


  • Understand what your organisation can do to help prevent DDoS attacks
  • Share your experiences with like-minded people focusing on DDoS mitigation attack prevention
  • Gain guidance, feedback and support on particular areas of concern

Who should attend

Open to all Janet-connected members and customers who are looking to further protect their connections from DDoS attacks.
