The U.S. government has advanced email security significantly over the course of the past year, thanks to the adoption of the Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting and Conformance (DMARC) email security protocols.
As of Oct. 16, a large set of U.S. federal government agencies are required to be compliant with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) 18-01 binding operational directive (BOD), which mandates the use of DMARC. The directive was issued in October 2017, giving agencies a year to incrementally implement the new email security approach.
