When a DDoS attack occurs, organizations respond using existing mental models of operations—in effect treating it as an operational problem—not taking into account the emotional effects of the malicious nature of the attack for both the people in the line of fire and everyone else in the org. Artur Bergman explores how people react and why a DDoS attack is different than other challenges a company may face, proving that it isn’t your fault and you’re not alone.
