Security managers should be checking their list twice

Review and revalidate your approach to mitigation Distributed Denial of Services (DDoS) attacks, says the Denim Group. Unfortunately, DDoS attacks have become increasingly simple to set up and have become even more difficult to defend against. The October DDoS attack against Dyn, a managed DNS provider, sent 10x to 20x the amount of traffic to Dyn servers, denying them the ability to provide DNS service to some of the top companies on the Internet. We suggest you revalidate your DDoS mitigation infrastructure, review plans for response should you encounter a DDoS attack, and update your plans based upon the more sophisticated recent DDoS attacks that have occurred.
