New research published today by Imperva Incapsula shows strong demand for DDoS mitigation skills and other security related talent.
Given the number of high profile DDoS attacks covered in the media, this should not surprise anyone. I searched on LinkedIn and it returned 28,619 results for DDoS attacks on LinkedIn alone.
