Media Alert: Farsight Security® CEO Dr. Paul Vixie to Present at Infosecurity Europe

May 22, 2019

SAN MATEO, Calif., May 22, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

What: Industry pioneer and Farsight Security Chairman, CEO and Cofounder Dr. Paul Vixie, will present “Short, Brutal & Nasty: New Domains and Their Life & Times ” at the annual Infosecurity Europe Conference in London. Infosecurity Europe is Europe’s largest and most comprehensive Information Security event.

Domain names are cheap, easy-to-get assets – the perfect tool for the perfect crime. In this presentation, Dr. Vixie will reveal the industry conditions that have sparked the explosion of domain names; explain how new domains are being abused for cybercrime; and finally, outline tools, techniques and procedures security professionals can put in place to reduce the risk posed by new domains.

Learning Outcomes:

-- Domain names are critical to an organization’s branding and operations -- Bad actors have learned to exploit new domains to commit crime -- New domains can be exploited to for zero-day attacks, counterfeit websites, phishing and other malicious activity -- Reputation services, blacklists do not provide immediate protection against new domains -- Organizations can implement necessary techniques, procedures and policies to mitigate risks posed by new domains
