DDoS Mitigation Skills Are In Demand I recently advertised on Kaggle to find a data scientist to help answer a question I was pondering: With the spate of distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks in the last year, were companies seeking candidates with corresponding mitigation skills? The idea was to scan and analyze job board posts to see if Imperva could find any evidence of a trend.

We ended up working with a small analytics consulting company to help us tease out the trends, and I think you will find the results interesting. On a worldwide basis, they point to a sustained increase in demand for professionals having DDoS mitigation experience across IT security, network engineering and operations, systems administration and DevOps.

    And I think the occurrence of DDOS attacks will continue to rise as the economic situation gets tighter and tighter.

    Just wondering, how much is the average salary for DDoS-related positions?
