Automation
This means embracing automated mitigation approaches, and moving away from slow manual processes," Obviously automation is the key for this rather than a manual process. Manual process would be outdated very shortly.

Future
that "it is not clear if current network infrastructure could withstand future attacks if they continue to increase in scale." Answer of this question is no, because we know there will be more technology advancement and more risks in the future. Better to keep up.

Disruption
The favorite DDoS targets of criminals in 2019 were banks and other financial institutions, along with public organizations such as police departments and local governments This gives us a clue, the main purpose of DDoS as being a disruption.

Cost of it
While not all of these attacks are spotlighted in the media, they cause significant financial blowback for companies in the form of paid-out ransoms, business downtime, lost revenue, and reputational losses, among other costs. This is surprising for me, I would expect any minute of downtime would cost a lot to any company.

Booters
Perhaps surprisingly, they found that most cybercrime is committed by people who aren't technical geniuses. Many of them offer so-called "booter" services It is not surprising at all. People tend to go to easy route if there is one.

5G
5G and IoT will make DDoS more practical and impactful unfortunately. Of course any technology can be used for good or bad.
