Valimail invented DMARC as a service in 2015, and since that time, we’ve been tracking the usage of DMARC across tens of millions of domains. Overall, we’ve seen consistent adoption and growth of DMARC usage and effectiveness.
In our new Banking and Financial Services DMARC Enforcement Report, we investigated a sample of more than 800 of the world’s leading banking and financial services organizations to determine how effective they are at implementing and achieving DMARC enforcement.
While there may be many more organizations in existence, we believe this is a significant sample size and representative of the industry as a whole.
Some of the most interesting pieces of data we uncovered from our study include:
Unfortunately, the banking and financial services industry remains the most impersonated of all industries. While the DMARC enforcement rate for the banking and financial services industry is only 43%, this is understandable. The cause of the low DMARC enforcement is most likely due to DMARC being challenging to implement, and companies not having the time or resources in place to maintain DMARC.
As we’ve seen in upcoming changes to standards like the PCI Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) will soon make DMARC implementation a mandatory requirement of the latest PCI DSS version 4.0. This means it’s imperative companies in the banking and financial services industry get DMARC implemented correctly and at enforcement as soon as possible.
