Post-event update: Thank you for coming to our event! We hope you had a great time and learnt how to prevent other people from spoofing your emails. Check out the PDF slides below!
Email Spoofing has become common place. Hackers are creating fake email and messages, targeting both the unsuspecting public, your customers, or even your own users, for financial and other malicious gains.
This is because Email lacks the ability to verify authenticity of all received mails. Fraudsters have taken advantage of this fundamental flaw to full advantage.
Developed in 2012, DMARC (Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting & Conformance – RFC 7489) is an email authentication protocol that gives insight into how email is delivered. DMARC gives email senders the ability to not only receive feedback about how receivers treat their email, but also the ability to inform receivers to reject illegitimate messages. DMARC is helping organizations of every size ensure reliability and prevent phishing and domain spoofing.
Many security devices and email providers have adopted the SPF, DKIM and DMARC standards, including Microsoft Office 365. Ensuring your own IT environment complies with this standard would help in the following ways –
- Prevent Enterprise spear phishing, and other attack variants such as CEO email fraud
- Detect misconfigurations of the underlying SPF and DKIM settings
- Inventory of all email senders using the valid email domain
However, how does this framework function? How do we set it in Office365? How well does it prevent Spoofing? What’s the right way of implementing it?
Our Senior Consultant and Microsoft MVP Vincent Choy, together with DMARC Evangelist Con Lokos, representing DMarcian Asia Pacific would present to you this extremely rare and insightful workshop on this subject matter. The CEO and Founder of Dmarcian, Mr Tim Dragen, is an original and current contributor to the DMARC RFC Standard.
