The High Cost of DDoS Attacks

Education Networks of America: ENA by Zayo > Articles > The High Cost of DDoS Attacks

With education resources more dependent than ever before on uninterrupted connectivity, DDoS attacks have never posed a greater threat to the continuity of your district’s network operations.

Here’s what’s on the line for your community when you choose your Internet provider

STUDENTS

The Problem: A successful DDoS attack prevents students from taking a statewide assessment on test day.

The Consequence: Students will have to take the exam another day. Not only will this delay increase student stress, it will force students to miss instruction time when the assessment is rescheduled.

ADMINISTRATORS

The Problem: A successful DDoS attack prevents district leaders from conducting daily business operations

The Consequence: Administrators fall behind on critical initiatives. This problem hinders performance and increases administrative burden because leaders must spend time and energy addressing the fall-out from the attack.

PARENTS

The Problem: A successful DDoS attack keeps parents from accessing student grades in the online portal.

The Consequence: Parents are deprived of the information they need to remain engaged with their children’s education. As a result, they become frustrated with the district’s administration.

IT TEAM

The Problem: A successful DDoS attack disrupts essential network activities across the district.

The Consequence: The already overworked IT Team is forced to set aside other pressing concerns to deal with the attack. This results in an inefficient use of the team’s time and resources that could otherwise be directed to help desk operations.
