Jeff explains a little bit about who Norse is, and why they were potentially targeted with a DDoS
We discuss what a DDoS is, how it becomes effective, and what methods/tools attackers use (in this case SNMP v2 reflection)
We talk about threat intelligence (reputational intelligence) and how companies and intelligence platforms can leverage this data to decrease risks actively
