DDoS volumes have more than quadrupled in the last 3 years. The impact of DDoS attacks on the Dutch economy increases proportionally. More collaboration and cooperation between traditional competitors is needed .The NaWas (National Scrubbing Center) and DCB (Dutch Continuity Board) are great examples about how parties can come together in a joined effort of protecting their customers.

To quantify the economic damage DDoS attacks cause, Octavia de Weerdt will, for the first time, present the research on their economic impact. Drawing on 5 years of data, together with SIDN (www.SIDN.nl) we will give an insight of the costs and most impacted sectors, how many .nl sites are protected, what trends can we pinpoint per sector and more.
