Abuse of the domain name system (DNS) is increasing at an alarming rate. Phishing attacks, for example, doubled in volume during 2020 alone. The pharmaceutical, fashion, technology, retail, and financial services industries are among the hardest hit, with threats on the rise across the board.

Trends in domain name arbitration activity provide key insights into the problem, including how brand owners can help prevent abuse online. A recent study analyzing domain arbitration data over the past decade sheds light on the specific challenges brands face and the proactive brand protection strategies that can be used to shield against opportunistic actors.

During this webinar, our experts discuss:

  • Developing a comprehensive brand protection strategy
  • Assessing infringement threats by risk level and potential level of harm to a brand
  • The importance of reviewing domain abuse through both a brand and security lens
  • Which top-level domains (TLDs) are most often registered and used in bad faith
