The Center for Cyber Security has just released a guide on how to secure domain names as an organization or a company, on a security level but also administratively.
The identity of a company or an organization online is largely linked to domain names. It is therefore worthwhile to look after its domain name during these times when online fraudsters are trying to damage corporate web and mail traffic.
For example, if a hacker can gain control of a domain name, it can be used to prevent access to a company's website, block mail communication, or redirect VPN traffic. This can have fatal consequences for the business it strikes.
The Center for Cyber Security has therefore released a guide on how domain names can be handled most securely.
The guide focuses on the security measures that should be taken and gives advice on both organizational and administrative measures as well as technical measures such as name server design and the DNSSEC security service.
All state authority domain names must be secured
As of January 2020, the domain names of all state authorities must be secured with DNSSEC. The guide is therefore extremely relevant for authorities, but anyone else who wants to secure their domain name will also benefit from the guide.
DK Hostmaster appreciates the focus on this topic, as we work every day to create a strong, digital infrastructure that makes the Danish part of the internet a safe and secure place to be.
