DMARC (Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting and Conformance) is considered an industry standard for email security to prevent attacks from malicious third parties sending fraudulent email using a legitimate address. DMARC is also an important defense against business email compromise (BEC), which is a growing risk for organizations of all sizes, with more than $1.7 billion in losses last year according to the FBI.
In this presentation we will cover not just DMARC, but also SPF and DKIM. Learn about the information that you need to help decision makers understand why it is important to implement these protocols to mitigate cyber risks.
