Information Security Exchange

Growing numbers of cyber threats and volumes of data are creating significant problems. Stretched security teams need to keep networks secure, yet still cope with digital transformation and regulatory compliance.

It’s not just known threats; some of the biggest headaches are around searching for the unknowns. Nearly 70% of CISOs recently surveyed discovered malware had lain hidden on their networks for unknown periods.

DNS is a crucial source, often overlooked, for checking for threats and monitoring the health of your network. Learn why analysing your DNS traffic is vital for security and how advanced techniques predict, detect & block threats before they harm your network.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Quantify the overload facing IS/IT professionals.
  2. Why is DNS is a vital, but often-exploited mechanism? How it is exploited?
  3. Learn how advanced analysis of DNS traffic gives you an advantage - predicting, detecting and blocking threats - both known and unknown.
  4. Find out how this complements and benefits existing cybersecurity tools and enriches SIEM information, cuts the window of compromise and reduces compliance workload.
  5. Learn how proactive monitoring helps contextualise networks and uses anomalous behaviour as early indicators of threats.
