SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 11, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- ValiMail, the world's only provider of automated email authentication, announced today that it will be presenting a webinar aimed at demystifying the Department of Homeland Security's recent email security directives.
On October 16, 2017 the Department of Homeland Security issued Binding Operational Directive 18-01, mandating that all federal agencies implement HTTPS, STARTTLS, and DMARC, with complete enforcement by October 16, 2018.
These changes will greatly improve the security posture of the U.S. government by closing off avenues that hackers and foreign state actors have used to impersonate federal agencies.
But there is a lot of confusion around email authentication. This webinar, from recognized experts in the field of email security, will demystify the process.
Steve Cooper, a partner at Fortium Partners and the former CIO of DHS, FAA, and the Department of Commerce, will kick off the presentation with an overview of DHS BOD 18-01 and the resources available to meet its requirements.
Shehzad Mirza, the director of operations for the Global Cyber Alliance, and ValiMail's director of industry initiatives, Seth Blank, will cover the importance of DMARC enforcement and explain how to comply with BOD 18-01.
The free webinar is scheduled for Wednesday, December 13, at 10am Pacific/1pm Eastern. To register, visit https://cc.readytalk.com/registration/#/?meeting=k46wzd07oyi1&campaign=epvim3lwluk1.
