As a sender you need to:
Have email authentication: Implementing a solution like Email Compromise Protection (ECP) is a crucial step in preventing threat actors from falsely representing your organisation in emails. If no steps are taken, this tactic, known as domain spoofing, empowers cyber criminals to misuse sending domains for malicious cyber attacks. It's a vital defence against such risks.
- Maintain low spam rates: If the rate at which recipients mark your messages as spam exceeds the new 0.3% threshold, there's a risk of your messages being blocked or routed directly to the recipients' spam folders.
Consequences of missing the deadline
If your company relies on email to communicate with your customers and you don’t implement email authentication by 1 February, these changes are going to significantly impact the deliverability of your messages to customers with Gmail and Yahoo accounts. To meet the new requirements you are recommended to implement Email Compromise Protection (ECP).
What is Email Compromise Protection?
Our Email Compromise Protection (ECP) effectively protects your organization against email frauds, whilst also protecting your customers and suppliers. This service, along with a VMC certificate, will make you both meet the new requirements from Google and Yahoo, as well as showing your logotype in your customer's inbox.
Background: The Rising Threat
According to the FBI's IC3 report, Business Email Compromise (BEC) incidents have surged by a staggering 81% recently, marking a concerning 175% increase over the past two years. In parallel, reported phishing attacks hit a staggering 255 million, underscoring the growing vulnerability of victims of digital communications from malicious actors.
BEC involves cyber criminals impersonating legitimate entities to deceive employees into transferring funds or sharing sensitive information. The alarming surge in these attacks has prompted major email service providers like Google and Yahoo to bolster their defences.
