[I wouldn't normally post our event notices to NANOG but I figure this
might be of interest. Any of you in the NYC area we'd very much like to see
you. I will tape it and post again when that's up -j]


The Internet Society?s New York Chapter (ISOC-NY <http://isoc-ny.org/>) and
the New York Technology Council (NYTECH <http://nytech.org/>) will join the
Public Interest Registry (PIR <http://www.pir.org/>) in presenting a midday
symposium ?Mitigating DDoS Attacks: Best Practices for an Evolving Threat
Landscape <http://www.pir.org/why/security/ddos>? in New York City on
December 5 2012. Participating organizations include Afilias, Google,
Neustar, M3AAWG, Symantec, EFF, and De Natris Consult. As a public service
PIR are generously covering the $99 fee for all attendees ? thus
registration is free!   The event will be webcast live via the Internet
Society Chapters Livestream Channel.

Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks are an all-too-common reality
in today?s Internet landscape and are an escalating global problem.
Whether a DDoS attack is motivated by criminal intent, like cyber
extortion, or is executed as an extreme form of free expression, the
resulting service interruptions can have wide-ranging effects.  This
program will address the motives behind and targets of DDoS attacks.  It
will also explore the various ways attacks are carried out, as well as
mitigation techniques and the risks of ?unintended consequences.?  The goal
is to foster a discussion and provide a platform for developing a framework
of best practices to mitigate DDoS attacks.
