E-mail predates the internet and as such, lacks one of the most basic security approaches - authentication of the sender. Cyber-criminals have figured this out and as a consequence, phishing attacks are on the rise. The FBI reports that Business Email Compromise (BEC) attacks are up 2370%.  Traditional content filtering approaches for email security will not stop this attack vector because there is no malware nor attachment to pattern-match when a criminal sends a fake email impersonating your CFO, other executives, or partners and colleagues you are expected to trust.  The vulnerability of traditional defenses has allowed impersonation attacks and Business Email Compromise to explode, leaving businesses to determine what is fake and what is real.

In this webinar, we will look at an important new layer to email security - the authentication of senders. Implemented properly, DMARC can prevent serious fraud attacks, closing one of the most damaging and pernicious email attack vectors.

Key takeaways:

  • What is email authentication (DMARC) and how does it work?
  • Can authentication enable trustworthiness in email?
  • How and why impersonation attacks occur, and how to prevent them
