Exposing the Enemy Within: How to Leverage DNS Data to Improve Breach Detection and Response
Target, Netflix, Twitter – these high-profile companies are among many that have fallen victim globally to malware attacks that exploit the Domain Name System – the routing infrastructure that directs all traffic within a network.
You know that DNS pathways are the critical connection point for users, server and devices. But if left improperly secured or managed, DNS also can – and will – be used by threat actors to steal critical data and attack other networks.
So, in this shifting threat landscape, how does DNS security fit within your current layered defenses? And what is your organization doing today to leverage DNS data to identify internal and external threats?
If you’re looking for new perspectives on these questions, then join Tom Field for an exclusive roundtable discussion where attendees will tackle such topics as:
- How does your security organization work with your network organization to mitigate threats – especially since so many originate within the network?
- Where does DNS fit into your layered-defense strategy?
- What are your biggest obstacles to improving DNS security and management?
