    Domain Name Security in 2020: Going Beyond Registry Locking

    Securing domain names in 2020 means more than just locking domains at the registry or requiring two-factor authentication to access domain management accounts. Now is the time to review domain name portfolios to assess whether valuable assets are protected. This includes ensuring that names have the appropriate locks applied, are leveraging DNSSEC, and are being monitored for unauthorized updates. It also means understanding whether your registrar is hardened against cyber-attacks which are becoming increasingly more sophisticated.

    Attend this 45-minute webinar on Wednesday, September 16 at 10am PT / 1pm ET where domain industry experts Matt Serlin and Elisa Cooper will discuss risks that exist and steps for mitigating them. Specifically they will be covering:

    • A review of the domain name ecosystem, and the inherent risks that lie herein
