Emergency Podcast - Rene Papesch - CTO at Riskwolf - Akamai's Outage and Its Technical and Financial Implications

Rene Papaesch, CTO at Riskwolf, jumped onto the pod to have a quick discussion about Akamai’s DNS outage and its technical and financial implications. 

Some of the things we discussed:

  • What is a Domain Name Server (DNS) and what happens when it breaks?
  • What is a Content Delivery Network (CDN) and why are they significant?
  • The concentration in the services that drive the internet
  • What actually happened to Akamai
  • How internet outages and downtimes can create reputational and financial risks
  • A parametric insurance solution can mitigate some of the financial risks

We'd love to talk with you
