ISSA National Capital Chapter December meeting topic:
by Matt Bianco
DNS is critical to the stability of communications on our networks as well as the internet but has largely gone unprotected. This very important service is now being used against us in many types of attacks and coupled with that are all of the new devices being introduced in the modern network. This is a great concern but they all have one underlying commonality……DNS. We will take a look at how mobile device proliferation is adding to the strenuous task of maintaining and allowing access to the network. It also raises the question on how to best protect you from BYOD and network malware. Understanding how malware communicates and exhilarates data through DNS will also highlight the benefits of adding security at that layer and how it can aid in incident response.
