Securing Your Data: Don’t Overlook DNS (Adversaries Aren’t)

Long dismissed as mere network plumbing, DNS has emerged to combat adversaries using it to bypass security defenses like firewalls, IDSs, and endpoint agents. In this session BlueCat’s Brian Shorland, will break down two cyberattacks and illustrate how DNS was used despite often being understated in the report of an attack. Shorland shows how DNS can be used to provide visibility and control to secure sensitive data and critical systems, both to defend against unwanted or unauthorized access and detect abnormal or malicious behavior. Shorland also covers how to implement policy control before internal DNS caching, and DNS query monitoring for breach detection and forensic visibility.

What you will take away from this session

  • How DNS attacks are bypassing firewalls, IDSs and endpoints
  • The understated importance of DNS in cyberattacks
  • How DNS can be used in breach detection and forensic visibility
  • The components of DNS data that truly matter
