Government agencies are a favorite target of hackers, and email the preferred method of intrusion. In fact, phishing via deceptive emails is the most common means of all cyberattacks, according to a recent industry study. And most agencies aren’t doing enough to stop it.
The Department of Homeland Security last year responded with a directive for all federal agencies to adopt DMARC – Domain Message Authentication Reporting and Conformance – for email authentication. The deadline for fully adopting DMARC is in October, yet about 80 percent of more than 1,300 dot-gov domains don’t meet requirements, and adoption is even less among dot-mil domains.
