A latest CSC report says that 83% of global 2000 organizations have not adopted basic domain security measures. The companies surveyed have failed to adopt domain security practices such as registry lock, which puts them at risk for domain name and DNS hijacking, phishing, and other fraudulent activity. It is important for companies to use defense-in-depth practices to proactively manage, secure, and defend as most of them have an online business model.
The report notes that only 20% of Global 2000 companies deploy enterprise-grade DNS hosting. Nearly 55% of the Forbes Global 2000 use retail-grade domain registrars, putting them at greater risk for phishing, social engineering, and attacks while complicating compliance demand.
