Hi [[ session.user.profile.firstName ]]

Why is DNS so important?

The domain name system (DNS) is at the heart of everything we do.

The internet has grown up around this signposting system that allows us to browse the web and allows applications and programs to find the systems they need to operate.

Watch this video to learn how the DNS works, why the DNS is regularly exploited by cyber criminals and what makes it the perfect place for us to detect signs of cyber threats and protect organisations against them.

  • Digital Transformation: Perspectives from Industry Leaders Recorded: Aug 8 2019 3 mins
    Nominet Cyber Security
    Today, if an organization is unable to keep pace with digital disruption its very existence is at threat. What’s more, unlike many previous business challenges, digital transformation is not a one-off event. Rather, it’s an unfolding process that changes over time as new technologies emerge that lead to new business models and modes of differentiation.

    Digitally transforming an enterprise to a point where it is capable of continual innovation is a huge prize, but it also brings with it a range of challenges, particularly when it comes to cyber security. In the digital age, organizations can no longer hide behind the security of their perimeter walls. Instead, they must open up digitally to partners, suppliers, IoT devices and even competitors in order to create the seamless, customer-centric services people increasingly demand.

    We spoke with industry leaders to garner their views on cyber security in the age of digital transformation.
  • Cyber Security in the Age of Digital Transformation Recorded: Jul 25 2019 28 mins
    Stuart Reed, VP Products, Nominet
    Today, forward-thinking enterprises are already digital to the core and those that aren't, soon will be.

    Advancements in technology such as the cloud, mobile, virtual reality (VR), blockchain, machine learning, data science, quantum computing and more will continue to reshape how we work and live.

    But this comes at a huge risk. The other major change that technology has brought us is the constant threat of damage from cyber crime. Without paying the right level of attention to cyber security, digital agility can expose more interfaces to these threats.

    Find out why cyber security issues are key for digital transformation projects, what the risks are and how to offset them.
  • Effecting Digital Transformation in Safety - the NTX Way Recorded: Jul 10 2019 2 mins
    Nominet Cyber Security
    The Haas F1 Team is a new and disruptive entrant to the world’s most prestigious motor racing carnival. Built on a new model where expertise is outsourced as much as possible and heavily reliant on technology, the team finds itself at an interesting and challenging juncture.

    Having spent four years building a core service as quickly as possible, CIO Gary Foote now has to start a digital transformation process to turn the technology platform into an enabler for the business.

    Hear him explain how NTX now safeguards the team as it embarks on that journey.
  • Leveraging Hidden DNS Information to Fight Threats Recorded: Jul 9 2019 10 mins
    Nominet Cyber Security
    Stuart Reed discusses how the information provided in a domain name system is far more comprehensive than just those transactions that take place, providing granular information around some security risks. However, as his conversation with Varun Haran suggests, few CISOs tend to make the most of this goldmine of information available to them.

    Recorded at the 2019 RSA Conference in San Francisco, the video covers:

    - The changing threat landscape
    - Foundational controls lacking in a breach
    - The concept of DNS tunnelling
  • The Role of DNS in Cyber Security Recorded: Jul 9 2019 8 mins
    Nominet Cyber Security
    Stuart Reed discusses the ways in which Nominet can improve visibility from a cuber security perspective with Nick Holland, DIrector of Banking & Payments at ISMG.

    Recorded at Infosecurity Europe, the video discusses DNS as the best kept secret in cyber security, and covers the following points:

    - The role of machine learning in mitigating risks
    - The need to improve visibility
    - The results of research on the CISO's role
  • How Does a Formula One CIO Cope? Recorded: Jun 25 2019 2 mins
    Nominet Cyber Security
    Nominet research uncovered the strain on those responsible for cyber security at high-pressure organisations. What’s it like in F1?

    Hear Gary Foote, CIO of Haas F1 Team, explain what drove him into racing and how he unwinds when he gets the chance.

    This video forms part of Nominet’s wider investigation into how CIOs and CISO cope with the pressure of keeping organisations safe from cyber security threats, while also being asked to improve efficiencies and value delivered.
  • Haas F1 Security and NTX Recorded: Jun 14 2019 2 mins
    Nominet Cyber Security
    In this 90 second video, Gary Foote, CIO of the Rich Energy Haas F1 Team, explains how Nominet’s NTX:

    - secures business data
    - protects reputations: Haas F1 Team and its partners
    - handles global spread
    - enhances an existing security stack
    - allows freedom to use own devices in safety
    - immediately found previously unknown threats and vulnerabilities

    NTX does this all without placing a burden on the team or presenting barriers to business as usual. The Haas F1 Team outsources as much as possible and in this instance has trusted Nominet’s expertise and technology to protect the business on its behalf.
  • Using the DNS to Block Phishing Attempts Recorded: Jun 14 2019 3 mins
    Nominet Cyber Security
    Although phishing has been around for decades, it’s still one of the most popular tactics used by cyber criminals.

    Education helps but is rarely 100% effective. Millions of spoof emails are sent every day and they get ever more convincing.

    Nominet’s NTX platform uses original research, data science and machine learning to weed out the signs of phishing. It analyses DNS traffic that’s usually whitelisted by firewalls and other cyber security measures to prevent phishing campaigns from being effective.

    This short video explains how phishing works and how NTX prevents harm, should your staff click through to the wrong place.
  • Using the DNS to Defend Against Malware Recorded: Jun 14 2019 3 mins
    Nominet Cyber Security
    Nearly all malware - ransomware, viruses, trojans, worms, adware, spyware, fileless malware and all the hybrid forms - use DNS at some point. It might be to steal data, communicate with a command and control server or misdirect you.

    The point is that DNS is so ubiquitous that most cyber security defences disregard it.

    NTX doesn’t. NTX uses the tell-tale signs of malware in DNS packets against the cyber criminals, to predict, detect and block malware.

    This short video explains more - feel free to share it with colleagues, manager and the board.
  • Using the DNS to Prevent Data Loss Recorded: Jun 13 2019 3 mins
    Nominet Cyber Security
    A very hard-to-detect technique for getting your confidential data out of your company is to hide it among DNS packets. It’s not fast, but criminals use it because it is so hard to detect. DNS traffic is so abundant and ordinary that very few cyber security solutions look at it.

    This quick video explains how it happens, how it can be disastrous for your organisation and what you can do to prevent it.
  • DNS: The Best Kept Secret in Cyber Security? Recorded: Jun 11 2019 2 mins
    Nominet Cyber Security
    DNS is used by the vast majority of cyber threats and runs on every single network. But it doesn’t have to be a liability; its very ubiquity makes it an invaluable source of threat intelligence.

    If only you could access that intelligence?

    NTX does it for you. Combining advanced DNS analytics with unique detection algorithms, original research, machine learning and data science, NTX predicts, detects and blocks cyber threats before they harm your business.
