On Tuesday I had the opportunity to read and provide feedback on the first draft of the government's "Implementation Profile for Basic Cyber Hygiene". This document comes as a result of their consultation last year on "Cyber security organisational standards".

Detecting and efficiently responding to incidents, especially those where critical resources are exposed to elevated risks is important for any organisation. This course is designed to share best practice in incident response, and provide hands on scenario-based activities to develop participants understanding and to enable them to apply this within their site. Topics Covered
The statistics provided by Jisc's Janet network CSIRT require a degree of interpretation. Often the numbers are influenced more by the team's activities than they are by external influences. For example: an increase in the number of malware incidents may indicate increasing infections, but it is just as likely to be due to increased detection rates by CSIRT.

You can call CSIRT for help   If you suspect that your institution is suffering from a DDoS attack you can call on Janet CSIRT for assistance. We can help you understand and analyse the traffic, and in most cases can work with our network operations centre and transit partners to filter traffic. Where possible we work with other network providers to eliminate the sources of the attack.

Following on from our messages and briefing at the start of the year, DDOS attacks are continuing to occur at a greater frequency than they have in previous years. We have been working to assist affected customers when they happen. Many of the attacks make use of unauthenticated UDP based services to reflect and amplify traffic against the chosen target. Open DNS resolvers (53/udp) and increasingly CHARGEN (19/udp) are the two most abused services. It's not unusual to see attacks in the order of 10Gb/s.
