Bad actors can target campaign websites or networks in an attempt to prevent access (websites) or hinder operations (network). These attacks are referred to as  Distributed Denial- of-Service or DDoS attacks. These attacks overwhelm websites and clog networks using all available bandwidth . The most obvious symptom of a DDoS attack is a site or service suddenly becoming slow or unavailable. But since a number of causes — such a legitimate spike in traffic — can create similar performance issues, further investigation is usually required.

To protect against DDoS attacks, we suggest looking into Cloudflare or Project Shield. Both are free, and partners of DDC, and we can help you set them up.
