AU_ISM 1431 AU_ISM_1431 AU ISM 1431 Guidelines for Networking - Service continuity for online services Denial of service strategies - 1431 n/a Denial-of-service attack prevention and mitigation strategies are discussed with cloud service providers, specifically: • their capacity to withstand denial-of-service attacks • any costs likely to be incurred as a result of denial-of-service attacks • thresholds for notification of denial-of-service attacks • thresholds for turning off online services during denial-of-service attacks • pre-approved actions that can be undertaken during denial-of-service attacks • denial-of-service attack prevention arrangements with upstream service providers to block malicious traffic as far upstream as possible. link 1
Azure_Security_Benchmark_v1.0 1.4 Azure_Security_Benchmark_v1.0_1.4 Azure Security Benchmark 1.4 Network Security Deny communications with known malicious IP addresses Customer Enable DDoS Standard protection on your Azure Virtual Networks to guard against DDoS attacks. Use Azure Security Center Integrated Threat Intelligence to deny communications with known malicious IP addresses. Deploy Azure Firewall at each of the organization's network boundaries with Threat Intelligence enabled and configured to "Alert and deny" for malicious network traffic. Use Azure Security Center Just In Time Network access to configure NSGs to limit exposure of endpoints to approved IP addresses for a limited period. Use Azure Security Center Adaptive Network Hardening to recommend NSG configurations that limit ports and source IPs based on actual traffic and threat intelligence.
