In a video interview at the recent Infosecurity Europe conference, Imai discusses:

  • A recent domain spoofing campaign that mimicked the website for HMRC, the U.K.'s tax authority;
  • How to use domain risk scores to proactively block bad sites and phishing campaigns;
  • Who is ultimately responsible for combating spoofed domains and protecting users.
