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.

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.
