GDS boosts government security with HTTPS/HSTS and DMARC

Patrick Peterson, founding member of DMARC and founder and executive chairman at Agari, said: “Email is the number one entry point for data breaches, and the use of DMARC email authentication protocol for all .gov email domains will greatly reduce the risk of breaches and cyber-attacks. This includes targeted email attacks such as Business Email Compromise (BEC) and spear-phishing, which target governmental staff by impersonating senior officials, and phishing attacks that target members of the public by spoofing the .gov brand.”
