About the Webinar
Today most organizations, from retailers to investment banks to automotive companies, believe that protecting their brand starts – and stops -- at the Top-level Domain (TlD). Domain names are critical company assets that must be protected. They are essentially your “brand ambassadors.” Yet below these shiny TlDs are often dozens, hundreds of abandoned, malicious or dynamic subdomains used for phishing, counterfeiting, and other cybercrime.

During the webinar, Lewman and Gundert will provide an overview of the domain name industry, how cybercriminals are increasingly using both legitimate as well as malicious subdomains to gain entry into networks and commit other cybercrime and the steps security teams can take to uncover subdomain abuse and protect their brand.
