In March 2021, the National Security Agency (NSA) and Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) released a joint statement highlighting how DNS is central to the operation of the entire internet.They further emphasized that prioritizing its protection is critical to combating cyber threats. This statement was also used to advocate for the widespread adoption of protective DNS measures.
DNS is at the core of all internet operations but ironically, securing the DNS layer has always been treated as a luxury rather than a necessity by most organizations. This strong stance by the NSA and CISA on having a protected DNS layer further emphasizes the point that having a secure network starts with shielding your DNS operations from threat actors. 70% of all cyberattacks can be prevented by protecting the DNS layer.
