  1. Hey Erik,

    DDoS Attacks is prevalent and catches most marketers off guard, however, I will sure like to make the most of the Mitigation Techniques courses!

  2. Hello Erik,

    I received an email from to check this out and am glad I did.

    I signed up for the training.

    Some of it was a bit too complex for me but it’s a good introduction to this entire DDoS thing.

    My blog isn’t big on traffic now and don’t think I should worry about DDos for now, but hopefully this training will come handy for me later on 🙂

  3. Hi Erik,

    I signed up and can see how much information this contains.

    I have read about DDoS but didn’t know as much as this training contains.

    I think this is a very good free training to get anyone up to speed on DDoS.

    For those who are curious about what this training contains, there’s the basic training containing in-depth topics such as

    Introduction to DDos,
    Bandwith Attacks,
    Protocal Attacks,
    Layer 7 Attacks,

    Just the introduction section had sub-topics like
    Defining DDos,
    DDoS Impact,
    Attacker Motivations,
    Networking Refresher and

    It even has a quiz and final exam.

    I’m really surprised all this is for free!!!

    Thanks for sharing this, Erik.

  4. Hi Erik,

    I like how easy it is to understand. I also like the graphics they included throughout to help ease the understanding a bit more.

    I can see the importance of learning about all this security stuff.

    Afterall, prevention is better than cure, right?

  5. Hey Erik,

    I wonder why I am just seeing this now. Well, its a good thing to even stumble about this DDoS protection Bootcamp. Its better to be late than never, right?

    Well, I am just going through the course outline and I am truly happy with the topics discussed.

  6. Hey Erik,

    Thanks for sharing this FREE course with us. It is very useful knowledge.

    The need to embrace any security related details has become fundamental because of the daily threats we face.

    DDoS is one of such threats but its relieving to have an opportunity of dealing with it!

  7. Great find. I think this kind of training and others like it will be important in the future as DDOS attacks become more prevalent. Not too long ago I had a website who’s hosting provider had a DDOS attack.

    This training and others would help us understand more what’s happening behind the curtain. Even if not technically inclined, I think it would still be good to know.
