Malicious Intent and You: A Primer on DomainTools Risk Scoring

Proactively Uncover Threats Using DNS and Data Science

Threat actors register and weaponize domains every day as part of phishing, malware, and spam campaigns. The goal of network defense is to identify and flag these domains registered with “malicious intent” before they are weaponized. Such advanced detection and categorization have many applications, including perimeter or host defenses, on-network threat discovery, or forensic review.

Join VP of Research and Data, Sean McNee, Ph.D, and Senior Data Engineer, Aaron Gee-Clough as they demonstrate how the DomainTools Domain Risk Score can be used to augment an organization’s existing threat intelligence processes. 

You’ll leave this presentation with an understanding of: 

  • What the domain risk scores are, and what they mean for defenders
  • How the scores work and how they’re generated at a high level
  • What defenders can do with risk scores including monitoring, alerting, and triaging workflows
