Domain names are a critical part of any business. They:
- allow your business to establish your online presence
- provide visibility into your business’ products and services
- facilitate the ability for communication through online chats or via email
- make it easy for people to find what they are looking for in a quick and efficient way
While having these domain names can be extremely beneficial, they also pose a huge risk. Attackers are out to to compromise the sensitive information of a business, or in certain cases, cause reputational harm.
Attackers can do this by gaining access to domain name records, or by registering similar domain names. A compromise of domain name records allows an attacker to redirect a website, or potentially email. Similar domains can be used in phishing campaigns directed to internal employees or other business partners.
To avoid becoming a victim, businesses’ need to take a proactive approach in detecting these types of attacks.
