The FBI and CISA recently issued a joint advisory on destructive malware currently being used to target Ukrainian organizations - and recommended a number of steps organizations can take to protect their networks. 

One step they recommend is monitoring DNS traffic for unusual activity like traffic spikes, activity from known malware sites, and keeping a close watch on traffic from Ukrainian or Russian TLDs. 

Monitoring DNS traffic can protect against more than just malicious activity - it can also help you identify mundane technical issues before they cause performance problems. Yet the sheer volume of DNS queries most networks handle today makes it incredibly challenging to discover and act on issues in real-time. 

Join our webinar on March 31, 2022 for a discussion on some of the top cyber threats (and other issues) you can resolve more quickly by analyzing your DNS traffic in real-time - and how Orb, the latest open-source observability tool from NS1 Labs, makes that easy to do. 

Attendees will learn: 

  • Why DNS traffic monitoring has become increasingly important in light of rising DDoS attacks and other malicious activity 
  • How DNS traffic monitoring can help you address other technical issues before they cause performance problems
  • Common approaches to DNS traffic monitoring today - and where they fall short
  • How Orb can help you monitor, analyze, and act upon abnormal DNS activity in real-time


Who should attend: 

  • NetOps and SecOps professionals
