CNI-ready DNS security

A major cyber attack on critical national infrastructure (CNI) is matter of “when”, not “if”, according to the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC).

Organisations vital to the security and day-to-day running of the UK attract a certain type of cyber attack. Attacks on CNI companies primarily seek one or more of the following:

  1. User accounts for email and other systems
  2. Access to confidential data – personal information, operating procedures and plans
  3. Control over operational systems to disrupt services, campaigns or defences

Cyber threats take many forms, but some of the most critical involve the exploitation or abuse of DNS infrastructure. By attacking DNS servers and changing the answers to queries stored there, hackers can redirect users to phishing and other malicious sites, for example.
