On Sans I found indeed some good sources:
- a webcast about defending DoS:
https://www.sans.org/webcasts/show.php?webcastid=90621
- an article discussing the defence of DDoS:

thanks

Subject: Malware and DoS analysis

Hello

I'm trying to analyse a company's vulnerability to malware (Viruses,
Trojans, Backdoors, etc)  and DoS. I'm however a little bit stuck in
finding an approach to do that. I'm trying to collect properties that
make a corporate environment vulnerable to certain kinds of malware and
DoS attacks.

Some of the points I want to have a closer look are:
-  Internet Access architecture
- Intranet and DMZ architecture
- General Network defences
- Anti-Virus deployment
- Deployed Operating Systems and their patch level
- Employees' awareness regarding malware
- Proper defence-in-depth concept

Do you guys have any other ideas? What can be considered to analyze DoS
susceptibility?

Thanks for your feedbacks
Joe
