How are you protecting public resources from email fraud?
More and more, cyber criminals are employing social engineering to impersonate a government vendor or a government official to redirect payments, gain network credentials, and steal personally identifiable information.
That’s one reason Congress ratified a DMARC mandate in the 2021 National Defense Authorization Act. The mandate requires that all United States-based email providers implement DMARC at scale. In 2017, dmarcian’s experts assisted the Department of Homeland Security in developing Binding Operational Directive 18-01 – Enhance Email and Web Security, which requires federal agencies to adopt DMARC.
California recognized the importance of DMARC to shield the state from email threats and passed SIMM 5315-A – Email Threat Protection Standard. This regulation directs state entities to use the DMARC authentication and policy enforcement protocol to implement appropriate levels of email domain protection.
The parliamentary network is one of the most highly targeted IT systems in the nation. DMARC is critical to preventing cybercriminals impersonating our official site to send phishing emails to constituents and clients and protects the aph.gov.au domain from being used for email spoofing, phishing attacks and cyber crimes. Email is the single most vulnerable pathway to compromise IT systems, and a compromise to the parliament network has significant ramifications for the Commonwealth.
With proven experience in the government sector, dmarcian is here to help state, local, tribal, territorial and international governments deploy DMARC authentication to fight business email compromise, phishing and spoofing with our DMARC Management Platform, educational resources, and expert support.
