Discover the power of SSL certificates in our recent webinar
All businesses with an online presence have a responsibility to customers and clients to keep their information safe. There are many ways of doing this, and while each method may differ, all are designed to provide the assurance necessary in today’s tumultuous digital environment.

Preserving Whois and GDPR Readiness
Nearly four weeks have passed since my last blog post that analyzed ICANN’s three proposed GDPR compliant WHOIS models.  Since then MarkMonitor’s domain policy team and our WHOIS data group have been working hard to advocate for the continued preservation of WHOIS registration data as well as to prepare its own database for compliance with the European regulation.
