Podcast: Typosquatting and Email-based Malware Campaigns
On September 29, 2020 dmarcian’s Robert Roskam, staff engineer, appeared on a GreatHorn podcast to talk about the rise of online attacks.
The US presidential election, the COVID-19 pandemic, the upcoming holidays and the increase in employees working from home are creating more opportunities for scammers to work their way into not only personal emails but companies’ networks. Robert and Inspired eLearning CLO, John Trest, join the host, Rob Mitchell, to discuss typosquatting, Punycode and homograph attacks as well as email-based malware campaigns. They suggest ideas that companies can implement to help protect themselves from these attacks including educating employees, monitoring look-alikes and getting a DMARC policy set to p=reject.
