Evidently, email is one of the most successful communications media ever invented, and its reach continues to grow. There is no doubt that email has completely changed the way we communicate and the way we do business. As it makes us more efficient, it comes with a cost and that is the risk of a data breach. Basically, email security is the process of ensuring the availability, integrity and authenticity of email communications by protecting against the risk of email threats. Nearly 300 billion emails are sent worldwide every day, and the number of worldwide users continues to grow at a rate of 3% per year. Hence, decades of work by the email industry has largely contained spam, but phishing and email-based malware remain enormous threats, with email involved in over 90% of all cyberattacks, according to various estimates.
Therefore, email insiders are busy developing standards aimed at addressing email’s most glaring weakness, that anyone can send email as anyone else. So, this lack of a strong sender identity model has created an epidemic of spoofing that does not exist through other messaging applications that have strong sender identity controls. By stronger sender identity protections in place, these fakes can be eliminated and email will be more trustworthy and better able to support advanced capabilities. This is exactly what a variety of standards groups are focusing on.
Also, organizations of all sizes can easily accept communication from the general public through an online form on a portal or website instead of traditional email. A lot of organizations are also using a whitelisting technique where their email system has a list of all the people who are preapproved to send an open communication to them over the Internet. Therefore, a message that is sent from someone not on the list is typically quarantined until the appropriate person can identify that it’s a legitimate message. Also, the gold standard for strong sender identity in email is DMARC, and the standards shaping the future of email are increasingly requiring it. Some of the new email standards that improve sender identity and security for the entire ecosystem are DMARC 2.0, BIMI and AMP for Email and many more.
