Leverage Agari to meet DMARC implementation timelines and to protect citizens
Since the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) issued the Binding Operational Directive (BOD 18-01) in October of 2017, Government agencies have taken action to implement DMARC. With the first deadline – January 14th to implement a monitoring policy – passed, 63% of agencies have deployed a DMARC Policy.

Jeanette Manfra, DHS Assistant Secretary for the Office of Cybersecurity and Communications (CS&C) explains that DMARC gives Government agencies a tool to secure their email channel, so cyber criminals can’t use Government Agency domains to send malicious emails to citizens.

End Email Deception – Put DMARC into Practice at Your Agency
In the last 6 months, 94% of Agari’s Federal domains have had email attacks thwarted by DMARC security. Threats have become increasingly sophisticated and are initiated by a wide range of adversaries — from rogue hacktivists to state-sponsored cyber criminals.

Fraudulent criminal organizations often pose as government agencies through website and email spoofing. Using “agency spear phishing,” cyber criminals impersonate a specific person at a government body over email, targeting an employee from the same or another agency. This is just one reason the DHS has issued BOD-18-01 to implement DMARC.
To the unwitting recipient, the consequences of not reading and responding to a federal agency demand are deemed more serious than ignoring a consumer brand’s direct email. Creating a DMARC record can help thwart government impersonation attacks on citizens.
