Cloud Egress Costs & DDoS

I recently came across an article online that detailed how, following a DDoS attack, the invoice from the cloud provider skyrocketed. It is crucial to monitor how a volumetric attack can impact your costs, particularly in terms of egress traffic or the resources needed from engineers to combat it. Implementing automated solutions such as rate limiting and traffic signals is highly recommended for a more efficient response. Remember to consider the cloud egress prices when devising your strategy.

Please also take into account auto-scaling limits, alerts. Also cost alerts, and spending limits should be in place.
