We learnt a huge amount as a result of doing the DDoS test simulation. It was better doing this in a controlled manner instead of waiting until we are hit for real. We now understand a lot more about our systems and our people have gained useful experience, which has only improved our readiness for a real attack.
We certainly see the real value of doing this on a regular basis in a similar way to testing our fire alarm system so that people and systems operate under real scenarios efficiently.
Since Q4 2016 there has been a 10% rise in total Web Application Attacks, most prominently in the form of SQLi attacks.
