Course Description

The importance of the Domain Name System (DNS) to your organization’s cybersecurity cannot be understated. Communications between your organization’s computers and the Internet (web, email, and file server traffic) depend on DNS to get to their intended destinations. Man in the Middle DNS attacks, DNS hijacking, DNS denial of service attacks and backdoor command and control malware/data exfiltration using DNS can be devastating. Malicious employees and other insiders may abuse DNS. Loss of critical business information, data breach of protected information, reputational harm and collateral damage to your business partners/customers may result in long-lasting effects. HIPAA, the Gramm Leach Bliley Act, the GDPR and State cybersecurity laws and regulations, including California, Massachusetts, New York (DFS), and Colorado require covered organizations to consider risks to DNS as part of an overall risk assessment and implement reasonable administrative, technical, and physical safeguards. This webinar will discuss how to anticipate, prevent, and respond to attacks on your organization’s DNS systems and comply with applicable legal requirements.

The program is presented by Brian Cesaratto, an attorney in Epstein Becker Green’s Privacy, Cybersecurity and Data Asset Management practice. He is a Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) and Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH).

Learning Objectives:

  1. Review the importance of Domain Name System security
  2. Discuss common types of attacks on DNS systems
  3. Anticipate, prevent, and respond to attacks on your organization’s DNS systems
