Why DNS Awareness Day?
One year ago, we faced the most significant DDoS attack in history when DNS provider Dyn was hacked causing major websites like Netflix, Airbnb and Twitter to go offline. In the year since the attack we’ve noticed a glaring problem, organizations are still not implementing best practices for DNS security and the next major DNS attack could be just around the corner. DNS Awareness Day is intended to educate organizations and internet users across the globe about best DNS security practices and drive awareness for the important role DNS should play in your company’s cybersecurity strategy.
“Silos still exist between network and security operation teams, letting DNS security strategies slip through the cracks, resulting in companies being vulnerable to attacks. Today, we’re celebrating DNS Awareness Day to bring attention to the important role DNS plays in creating a sound cybersecurity strategy.”
