Afilias Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer Ram Mohan recently shared what every CIO should do about DNS security, on SecurityWeek.com. From the article:
Companies may spend millions creating and promoting their brand in the offline world, forgetting that on the Internet their domain name is their brand. It’s often the case that it is only after a company’s DNS has come under attack, or after it has suffered downtime with a non-malicious cause, that CIOs start thinking about DNS strategically….When it comes to critical infrastructure such as DNS, the first step for CIOs is recognizing the fact that a company’s domain name is not only the online ambassador for its brand, but also the glue that holds the whole Internet-based business together. From there, the appropriate strategic decisions will surely follow.
