DNS is a ubiquitous network service which has a front row seat when it comes to malware activities. Most organisations neglect to consider the scale and simplicity of using DNS as a visibility and control point. DNS servers are also home to a wealth of essential operational data that can accelerate incident investigation.

This session will discuss the role that DNS could and should play in security architecture and operations as well as identify how DNS itself is increasingly used as an attack vector by malicious actors.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Understand how DNS can be used as an attack vector
  2. Learn about how Malware uses DNS for Command & Control
  3. Learn about Data Exfiltration & Infiltration via DNS
  4. Learn how to protect against DNS vulnerabilities and use DNS as a visibility & control point in your network
