Leveraging Hidden DNS Information to Fight ThreatsStuart Reed of Nominet on Using DNS to Get Visibility on Security Risks
The information provided in a domain name system is far deeper than just those transactions that take place. A DNS provides much more granular information around some security risks, although CISOs tend to overlook this information, says Stuart Reed of Nominet.
"With more and more firms embarking on the digital transformation journey, there are lot more inflection points where threats can manifest themselves and cause harm to organizations," he says.
In a video interview with Information Security Media Group at RSA Conference 2019 in San Francisco, Reed discusses:
- The changing threat landscape;
- Foundational controls lacking in a breach;
- The concept of DNS tunneling.
Reed is vice president of product at Nominet. He is directly responsible for driving Nominet's cybersecurity roadmap both from a strategic and delivery perspective.
