Reducing Your Cyber Risk with DNS Protection

Presented by

John Hart, IT Security Specialist/Consultant & EntrepreNerd @ Nerds On Site + Sam Kumarsamy and Jonathan Barnett @ OpenText

About this talk

Although we have a lot to thank Paul Mockapetris for since the invention of the domain name system (DNS) in 1983, we must remember that DNS was not designed with security in mind. And since then, bad actors have been trying to exploit this in numerous ways. DNS is designed to be invisible, so it is easy to overlook DNS security as a priority. However, a vulnerable DNS leaves your organization susceptible to risk. DNS attacks are on the rise, and the cost of a successful DNS attack can exceed more than $1 million (Dark Reading). Adopting DNS protection allows you to stop threats early, reduce the risk of malware infection to your network and endpoints and maintain privacy. Join John Hart, IT Security Specialist/Consultant & EntrepreNerd at Nerds On Site and OpenText Cybersecurity Product Marketing Director, Sam Kumarsamy as well as Sr. Product Manager, Jonathan Barnet to review: • The gaps in understanding DNS security and challenges businesses face with DNS • How a robust DNS filtering solution can drastically reduce the number of compromises, infections and associated remediation costs • Why DNS protection is a critical part of building cyber resilience The insights shared will help you understand the need for DNS filtering and guide you on next steps.
