Tangent is offering free security assessments for Industrial and Pharmaceutical OEMS. Our security assessment will identify email and domain vulnerabilities. Vulnerabilities leave a window open for phishing, business email compromise (BEC) and other email-based attacks using your domain.
As a pharmaceutical or industrial original equipment manufacturer (OEM) company, your brand is critical to your success. Protecting your brand reputation is vital to ensure that your customers trust your products. One way to do this is by implementing DMARC security protocols. However, it’s not enough to simply implement DMARC – you need to conduct a DMARC security assessment to ensure that your implementation is effective.
DMARC stands for Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting, and Conformance. It’s a security protocol that helps prevent email fraud and phishing attacks by allowing email recipients to verify that incoming messages are from an authorized sender. DMARC also enables senders to receive reports on how their email is being handled, allowing them to make improvements to their email authentication practices.
Pharmaceutical and industrial OEM companies are prime targets for cybercriminals because of the sensitive nature of their business operations. Cybercriminals may attempt to impersonate your brand in order to steal sensitive information, money, or intellectual property. They may also attempt to deliver malware or ransomware to your customers or employees through phishing emails that appear to come from your company.
A DMARC security assessment is a comprehensive review of your organization’s DMARC implementation. It involves analyzing your DMARC records, examining your email authentication practices, and testing your DMARC policy to ensure that it’s effective at preventing unauthorized emails from being delivered.
Here are three reasons why you need a DMARC security assessment if you’re a pharmaceutical or industrial OEM company:
Protect Your Brand Reputation:
Your brand is your most valuable asset. A successful phishing attack that uses your brand to trick customers into providing sensitive information can damage your reputation and erode the trust that your customers have in your products. A DMARC security assessment can help you identify vulnerabilities in your email authentication practices and implement a stronger DMARC policy to prevent unauthorized emails from being delivered.
Ensure Regulatory Compliance:
The pharmaceutical and industrial OEM industries are heavily regulated, and failure to comply with regulations can result in severe penalties. DMARC compliance is required for some regulations, such as the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). A DMARC security assessment can ensure that your DMARC implementation is compliant with these regulations.
Improve Email Deliverability:
DMARC can help improve your email deliverability by ensuring that your emails are authenticated and not marked as spam or phishing attempts. A DMARC security assessment can identify issues that may be impacting your email deliverability and help you resolve them, ensuring that your legitimate emails are delivered to your customers’ inboxes.
A DMARC security assessment is essential for pharmaceutical and industrial OEM companies that want to protect their brand reputation, ensure regulatory compliance, and improve email deliverability. By conducting a DMARC security assessment, you can identify vulnerabilities in your email authentication practices and implement a stronger DMARC policy that effectively prevents unauthorized emails from being delivered.
