Session Title | Preserving the DNS as a Critical Component of a Secure and Reliable Internet. 

The Domain Name System (DNS) is no longer just a technical function of the network run by system administrators. The DNS is now a critical infrastructure used in everyday communications and is a gateway to all networks and systems. It is critical that policymakers and organization decision makers pay attention to their DNS infrastructure. If your DNS is compromised, all of your systems and networks are at serious risk.
