The possibility of DDoS attacks was identified as a threat a number of years ago following stories about other companies falling victim. At the time, DDoS was a new type of threat that was investigated by the bank's IT Risk and Control team. During the investigation period, a DDoS attack rocked the Irish government, knocking a department's website offline.
After that attack, Permanent TSB quickly made the decision to take action and bolster their DDoS defenses. Following the risk assessment, it was decided that a DDoS mitigation service was required, and so Martin Farrelly and his team began to research the market for DDoS protection providers.
