DNS is one of the backbones of the Internet as we know it. It is crucial in making sure that packets get to the right destination, and you receive the information you need. However, DNS is yet another protocol that, over the years, has fallen victim to inherent vulnerabilities and attacker abuse. DNS vulnerabilities are nothing new, but they are still being utilized daily by attackers with a wide range of targets. It's time to make sure that DNS is part of your security posture.

In this webcast, you will learn:

  • Current DNS vulnerabilities, and how they can impact your security posture
  • Examples of DNS in the wild and the sectors being targeted
  • Turning DNS into an asset to increase your ability to respond to incidents
  • Utilizing DNS to make your information security team better, faster and stronger
  • "What's Next": What does the future have in store for DNS?
