Training: Managing and securing a portfolio of domain names - Key Accounts

Home > Products and services > Training > Training: Managing and securing a portfolio of domain names - Key Accounts

A portfolio of domain names is an invaluable asset for an organisation. And yet in many cases it is the result of several decades of acquisitions carried out haphazardly, with no unified standards and with no one in charge. The risks entailed by this scattered approach are numerous: uncontrolled costs, poor online brand protection, endangering the information system, damage to the brand image, etc.

It is nowadays essential to put in place a pertinent and effective domain names policy in order to protect your digital territory and your brand in the broader sense.
