Prepare for the E-pocalypse

Email Authentication: Are You Ready for Stringent Email Acceptance Rules at Google, Apple, and Yahoo?

What if customers simply stopped getting your company’s emails? Organizations may face that scenario after three of the biggest email providers, Gmail, Apple, and Yahoo, announced new email authentication requirements, including DMARC.

Organizations that don’t comply could see their emails routed directly to customers’ spam folders or rejected altogether. Join our expert panel to learn what to do before the deadline—and how Proofpoint can help.

In this Power Series, our panel of experts will discuss:

  • Why Yahoo, Apple, and Google are mandating email authentication
  • How email authentication and DMARC work
  • The benefits and challenges of meeting the new requirements

Identity Security Gaps and Threats

More than 80% of cyberattacks—including ransomware and data exfiltration—rely on exploiting a privileged identity. Although organizations spent nearly $20 billion per year on identity and access management (IAM) tools in 2023 alone, attackers are still getting through. Why are existing security approaches not doing the job and stopping attackers in the middle of the attack chain? Our experts will explore the gaps between common security strategies and today’s highly successful attacks.

In this Power Series, our panel of experts will discuss:

  • Why modern attacks center around using privileged identities
  • How to make sense of PAM, XDR, EDR and ITDR
  • Where identity threat detection and response can fill the gaps

Protecting the #1 Data Loss Vector

They’re not a new problem, but misdirected emails are the leading cause of both compliance violations for GDPR and HIPAA and accidental data loss. Are you worried about a physician sending the wrong health record to a patient? Or HR exposing confidential data via email to a wrong but similar-looking contact name? According to Ponemon research, 65% of all data loss incidents occurred via email in 2022. Nearly two-thirds of organizations experienced data loss or exfiltration due to an employee mistake on email. Security teams take 48 hours, on average, to detect and remediate a data loss incident caused by employee carelessness.

Join this Power Series as our panel of experts discuss:

  • How and why simple mistakes in email have become the #1 cause of fines and other serious consequences due to data loss
  • Why new AI- and behavior-based approaches can augment Microsoft and Google’s native capabilities to finally solve this problem
  • How you can help all your users become defenders of your organization’s data, lowering the burden on your analysts and reducing risk
