Domain Name System (DNS) infrastructure is critical to both the Internet and most private networks, however, many recent events have shown that it is vulnerable to attack, affecting millions of users when it goes down. There are tools and processes enterprises and service providers can use to protect DNS infrastructure but real protection is difficult to achieve due to the scope of the problem. This webinar provides a detailed look at the threats to DNS infrastructure and how those threats can be mitigated.
This webinar discusses how Application-to-person (A2P) SMS has increasingly become a key method for organizations to communicate with their customers. This has been driven by the ubiquity of mobile phones and the universality of SMS. Unfortunately, this has also lead to a massive growth in messages being sent through illegitimate routes that bypass the operators’ billing systems. This is commonly referred to as grey routes carrying grey traffic, and is a tactic commonly used by third-party aggregators to boost their own profitability. The result is lost revenue for mobile operators who often do not have visibility and control of messages on their network.

Cloudmark CTO Neil Cook discusses the trends in messaging abuse over the last 12 months including the recent spike in fraud and phishing attacks and how the OTT market is now coming under attack.
This Light Reading conference will focus on how mobile network operators are already leveraging the power of the network infrastructure to protect their assets and subscriber experiences – and how the security architecture and different network security applications within it must evolve to keep pace with the rapidly changing security threat landscape.
