There was an article published on Inc. that delved into a recent study examining why so many companies can’t defend again domain hacking.
From the article:
The study, released earlier this month by international business firm CSC, found that 83 percent of organizations surveyed haven’t implemented baseline security measures like domain name registry locks, which help prevent domain name hijacking and/or unauthorized transfers. More than half of the companies surveyed used retail-grade registrars, which typically provide less in the way of security safeguards and training than enterprise-grade registrars. A whopping 97 percent failed to use DNSSEC, a domain security protocol designed to address core vulnerabilities in the foundations of the internet itself.
Now of course a lot of this stuff is commonplace for many domain investors who do a better job with securing their domain names.
The article also demonstrates why you domain name is such an important piece of your overall company.
With Covid-19 and a bunch of Zoom meetings the article also touches upon misspells and phishing.
There was also a bit of agenda bias here. CSC did the study and kind of took a shot at what they call, “retail-grade registrars” vs what they and competitors like Mark Monitor do.
Agenda aside, it’s still a little pathetic that large companies are not dedicating more time and thought to protecting their domain names.
