We’re very excited to announce the launch of the online DDoS Protection Bootcamp. Built for IT security and network ops professionals, this one-of-a-kind online training portal offers an unprecedented selection of free courses and challenging quizzes that test and improve your DDoS protection skills.

Jointly prepared by Imperva Incapsula and DDoS testing firm NimbusDDoS, the DDoS Protection Bootcamp leverages the domain expertise of both companies to offer in-depth technical training in DDoS protection. Until now, you literally had to work for a security company to have access to this level of knowledge.

Unlike other training sites, the DDoS Protection Bootcamp is uniquely designed to combine rich educational content with a fun online quiz-based format that lets you measure your knowledge as you progress through the topics. Each quiz question comes with a complete explanation of the right answer so you can learn from your mistakes.

What You’ll Learn at the DDoS Protection Bootcamp

Recent studies indicate that almost 75 percent of organizations have suffered at least one DDoS attack over the past 12 months. This is not a problem that’s going away. The DDoS Protection Bootcamp gives trainees the technical knowledge and skills to identify and block different types of DDoS attacks.

This comprehensive course covers the following topics:

  • Introduction to DDoS
  • Volumetric Attacks
  • Protocol Attacks
  • Application Level (Layer 7) Attacks
  • Reflection Attacks
  • Understanding Risks
  • Mitigation Techniques
  • DDoS Trends

The training is divided into Basic and Advanced levels so you can choose the courses that best match your needs and proceed at your own pace. As noted, the educational content for each topic is followed by a quiz whose level of difficulty depends on the course level. The course concludes with a final exam covering all eight topics.
