M3AAWG Releases Comprehensive DMARC Training Videos to Fight Email Spoofing

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/04/13 -- As the DMARC authentication specification gains broader adoption, M3AAWG has released a free series of videos to help the industry implement and understand the value of the anti-phishing technology. The M3AAWG DMARC Training Series provides almost two and half hours of instruction from DMARC.org technical experts, including information for both domain owners who want to protect their brands from "spoofing" and for ISPs or mailbox providers who want to protect end-users from fraudulent messages.

The M3AAWG DMARC Training Series includes six 15 to 40 minute segments originally presented as a training session by Michael Adkins, M3AAWG Co-Vice Chairman and DMARC.org member, and Paul Midgen, DMARC.org co-chair, during a M3AAWG meeting in October 2012. The series provides general background on the DMARC (Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting and Conformance) specification and its purpose, instruction on how to deploy the technology, and details on its reporting processes.

The series also includes a breakout session addressing topics related specifically to domain owners and third parties who send email for other companies, and another breakout session focusing on ISP and mailbox provider issues. The videos emphasize practical considerations with Adkins and Midgen providing numerous examples. The complete M3AAWG DMARC Training Series is available on the M3AAWG site under the Activities tab from the Training Videos page (https://www.maawg.org/activities/maawg-training-series-videos).

"M3AAWG was instrumental in incubating the development of DMARC at its meetings and, now that the technology is in the adoption stage, continues to support the technology with the release of a comprehensive video training series. DMARC was developed to help brands and mailbox providers work together in identifying fraudulent messages. These videos are unique because they feature technical experts who helped develop DMARC explaining how to implement the technology for the best results," said Trent Adams, Chair of DMARC.org.

AOL, Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo! and other email receivers are using DMARC to protect end-users and brands. The technology incorporates the widely used SPF and DKIM specifications but also includes feedback, monitoring and debugging processes, according to Adams.

M3AAWG Co-Chairman Chris Roosenraad said, "Glancing at a message's content, it's often impossible for users to figure out that an email which seems to be from their bank or a favorite store is actually a scam, an attempt by a criminal to defraud the user. Spoofing, or impersonating a known brand in an email to trick users out of personal information or for other criminal aims, is a growing problem. We produced the video series because cooperative industry efforts like DMARC are essential to fighting this type of abuse and protecting users."

Machine Learning helps make complex systems more efficient. By applying advanced Machine Learning techniques such as Cognitive Fingerprinting, wind project operators can utilize these tools to learn from collected data, detect regular patterns, and optimize their own operations. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Stuart Gillen, Director of Business Development at SparkCognition, discussed how research has demonstrated the value of Machine Learning in delivering next generation analytics to imp...
In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, demonstrated how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and shared the must-have mindsets for removing complexity from the develo...

Early adopters of IoT viewed it mainly as a different term for machine-to-machine connectivity or M2M. This is understandable since a prerequisite for any IoT solution is the ability to collect and aggregate device data, which is most often presented in a dashboard. The problem is that viewing data in a dashboard requires a human to interpret the results and take manual action, which doesn’t scale to the needs of IoT.

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
