The Department of Homeland Security has issued Binding Operational Directive 18-01 for agencies to upgrade their email and web security within 12 months. Given the timelines outlined, agencies will need to navigate the implementation of SPF, DMARC, and STARTTLS efficiently. The first deadline is to provide an Agency Plan of Action, which is due November 15th, 2017. Proofpoint, a leading cyber security and email security provider has a comprehensive toolkit to aid the path to compliance within the required deadlines.

Getting Started with DMARC
DMARC (Domain-based Message Authentication Reporting & Conformance) protects your trusted domains from email spoofing attacks. But, enforcing DMARC can be difficult and introduces the risk of blocking legitimate, business critical email. Proofpoint provides the visibility, tools, and services to help you implement DMARC authentication quickly and confidently.
Stop Email Fraud with a Proven DMARC Vendor
Publishing a DMARC record in DNS is just the start of the journey towards protecting your domains from email fraud. Identifying and authorizing all legitimate senders, including 3rd party email service providers, and fixing authentication issues are critical steps you need to take before you reach a DMARC ‘reject’ policy.
