We live in a hyperconnected world, with IP traffic exploding, and over 3 zettabytes of annual IP traffic expected by 2021. Half the world’s population uses the Internet and 125 billion IoT devices are expected by 2030. All this complexity along with constantly evolving nature of cybersecurity threats is leading to more breaches, cyber attack threats, and longer times to resolve incidents. Over the past 10 years, cybersecurity threats such as malware attacks have totaled 780 million. There are still gaps like DNS that are often left open and vulnerable to cybersecurity attacks and misuse. Further, existing cyber protection tools work in silos, lack end-to-end visibility and often require manual processes to contain threats.
Ponemon Institute recently conducted a study to assess the DNS cybersecurity risk for organizations in the United States and EMEA. The study:
- Provides insights into the organizations' exposure to cybersecurity risks
- Assesses their preparedness to handle a cybersecurity breach
- Measures their ability to respond to cybersecurity attack incidents quickly
The study also quantifies the collective DNS cybersecurity risk in the form of a Global DNS Risk Index. Complete the form on the right to download this research paper and learn more about the global DNS Risk Index number.
Cybersecurity Risks That Are Of Greatest Concern
The Ponemon study underscores the importance of creating the DNS Risk Index. Not only did respondents in this research rate detecting, preventing, containing and recovering from DNS-based data exfiltration cybersecurity attacks as very difficult, (as shown below), but also 54% of respondents say DNS-based data exfiltration cybersecurity attack risks are a significant worry for their organizations.
