From the WV Disaster Preparedness Task Force - Phishing Mitigation Strategies
Clara Mullins, City National Bank and Co-Chair of the WV Disaster Preparedness Task Force shared a whitepaper from NCFTA (National Cyber-Forensics & Training Alliance) and wanted to share it with our members.
It is a great resource, especially for those that aren’t tech-savvy. According to InfraGard, it was created to drive compliance with DMARC as a very effective (but not a silver bullet) phishing mitigation strategy.
DMARC, which stands for “Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting & Conformance”, is an email authentication, policy, and reporting protocol. It builds on the widely deployed SPF and DKIM protocols, adding linkage to the author (“From:”) domain name, published policies for recipient handling of authentication failures, and reporting from receivers to senders, to improve and monitor the protection of the domain from fraudulent email.
