The Importance Of Monitoring Domain Names And The Ways To Implement It To Prevent Cyber Attacks

The dependability of your website, as well as the security and confidence of your users, depend on an efficient Domain monitoring system.

Keep a tight look out for any unwanted assaults on your domains and services because the DNS is a common target for hackers. In this article we will discuss about importance of domain monitoring and how to prevent cyber attacks, so continue reading.

Types Of Cyber Attacks & Ways To Prevent Them

  1. Network Attacks

An attempt to take advantage of a weakness or vulnerability on a network or its systems, which may include servers, firewalls, computers, routers, switches, printers, and more, is known as a network attack.

Network attacks have increased in frequency over the past few years, in part because small and mid-sized firms are not investing quickly enough in securing their systems. Few of the network attacks are Denial of Service (DoS), Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS), SYN Flood, DNS Amplification and DNS Poisoning.

How to prevent it?

Utilizing an antivirus programme, setting up a network monitoring tool, avoiding trusting relationships with unidentified parties, enabling cryptographic network protocols, deploying inline or scrubbing DDoS mitigation technology, and other measures can all help prevent network attacks.

  1. Wireless Attacks

Malicious hackers frequently decide to enter a firm via exploiting its WiFi network and associated infrastructure devices because of the nature of WiFi and its methods for granting network access. Typical wireless attacks consist of Jamming, Bluetooth Vulnerabilities, Evil Twin, Replay Attacks (Wireless), WPS Attacks, WEP/WPA Attacks, IV Attack, TKIP Attack, WPA2 Attacks and others.

How to prevent it?

By turning off unnecessary networking functions, hiding your SSID, changing the default password, and securing it with a strong password, you can prevent wireless attacks. 

  1. Malware & Ransomware Attacks

Any software that was written with the intention of harming data, devices, or people is considered malware, or malicious software.

Malware infection signs include reduced system performance, automatic email sending, erratic reboots, and the initiation of unexpected activities. There are countless malware attacks such as viruses, Keyloggers, Worms, Trojans, Ransomware / Crypto-Malware, Logic Bombs, Adware & Spyware and Rootkits etc.

How to prevent it?

While perfect protection from cybercriminals is impossible, there are a number of steps businesses may take to reduce or stop malware attacks, such as:

Creation of security policies.

Using App-Based Multi-Factor Authentication for Security Awareness Training.

Installing spam and malware filters.

Modifying the default operating system settings.

  1. Social Engineering Attacks

Social engineering is the practise of tricking a user into disclosing sensitive data, such as user login passwords, wire transfer instructions, or private customer information. One of the most common ways to get malicious malware into a network is through it. The following are typical forms of social engineering attacks:

Email Phishing



Watering Hole Attacks




How to prevent it?

Companies frequently spend money on annual security awareness training or ongoing phishing simulations as an extra layer of protection.

Installing threat mitigation tools like firewalls, antimalware, and email spam filters is also rather prevalent.
