Email Fraud Landscape, Q1 2018

Support for email authentication continues to grow among email receivers. However, too few organizations are taking advantage of this global infrastructure by deploying authentication on messages sent from (or apparently sent from) their own domains.

Meanwhile, there's a worldwide crisis of spearphishing and impersonation, causing untold billions in monetary losses, cybersecurity mitigation costs, and brand damage.

In the latest quarterly update of the Email Fraud Landscape, Valimail takes a look at the state of email impersonation, email fraud, email authentication, and more.
