Avoiding DNS Pain

In every organisation DNS is a critical system, but it rarely gets the attention that it deserves. We rely on DNS for the smooth operation of our businesses; if your customers can’t reach your website or email you, then your business is effectively cut-off.

Organisations will keep disaster recovery plans and business continuity procedures for their corporate websites, mail servers and internal systems; but how many of these plans and procedures include DNS?

Over the past few years, attacks against DNS have been on the rise. These attacks may be direct attacks against DNS server software; but they can also come from compromised credentials or DNS zone misconfigurations such as dangling DNS entries.

In this session, I am going to walk through performing a DNS maturity assessment and how you can improve the management of DNS with tools like DNSControl.
