Six Steps to Securing Your Domains

We all know that hackers and cybercriminals attack websites directly, skillfully and frequently. Now, with growing frequency, a new breed of politically-motivated hackers known as “hacktivists” have turned to another attack vector—hijacking domain credentials. Attacks against domain name registration accounts and the hijacking of domain name system (DNS) records are profoundly disruptive and dangerous to business as they result in a redirected website, making visitors unable to access the site that they expect. Such security breaches can not only have a real impact on corporate reputation and customer trust, but can also hurt an organization’s bottom line quickly and painfully. Your company’s domain names enable customers to interact and transact with you online and, as a result, are a valuable corporate asset that needs round-the-clock protection.
