In today’s digital age, the importance of email security cannot be overstated. At Media Rocket, we have always been committed to protecting our clients and their data. In line with this commitment, we are excited to announce our partnership with Sendmarc, a leading provider of email security solutions. This partnership comes at a crucial time, as DMARC (Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting & Conformance) regulations have recently been mandated and through implementation, will enhance email security and combat phishing and spoofing attacks.

 

Understanding DMARC

DMARC is a technical standard that helps protect email domains from being misused by malicious actors. By leveraging existing email authentication techniques like SPF (Sender Policy Framework) and DKIM (DomainKeys Identified Mail), DMARC ensures that legitimate emails are properly authenticated and that fraudulent emails are blocked. This not only protects businesses, and clients, but also helps maintain the trust and security of email communications.

 

The Role of Sendmarc

Sendmarc stands out as a leader in the field of email security. Their comprehensive solutions for DMARC implementation and monitoring are designed to safeguard your email domains effectively. By partnering with Sendmarc, we can offer our clients the highest level of email protection, ensuring that their communications are secure and their domains are not exploited by cybercriminals.

 

The Importance of DMARC Regulations

The introduction of DMARC regulations marks a significant step forward in the fight against email fraud. These regulations require businesses to implement DMARC policies to improve their email security posture. By adhering to DMARC regulations, companies can significantly reduce the risk of email spoofing and phishing attacks.

 

Key Statistics to keep in mind when debating DMARC compliance:
  • According to a report by the South African Banking Risk Information Centre (SABRIC), phishing attacks in South Africa increased by 65% in 2023, underscoring the growing threat.
  • Businesses in South Africa that implemented DMARC reported a 70% reduction in email-based attacks.
  • Only 5% of South African companies have achieved the ‘Mature’ level of cybersecurity readiness, necessary to withstand contemporary cyber threats.
  • The South African Cybersecurity Authority noted that DMARC implementation improved email deliverability by 12% for local companies, ensuring that legitimate emails reached their intended recipients.
  • The South African Institute of Chartered Accountants (SAICA) revealed that 80% of domains targeted in phishing attacks in South Africa did not have DMARC policies in place.
  • As reported by IBM Security’s 2023 Cost of a Data Breach Report, data breaches in South Africa have surged by 73% since 2015 and on average cost R2750 to recover the data.
