DMARC is 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. Enabling DMARC will stop your domain from being spoofed. It stands for Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting, and Conformance. 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.
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.
Here are Four reasons why you need a DMARC security assessment if you’re a pharmaceutical or industrial OEM company:
Boost your Email Security from Phishing:
The most sophisticated and successful phishing attacks use your domain. Phishing emails that seem to be sent from accounting departments and CEOs can be particularly hazardous and DMARC can stop them in their tracks.
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 DMARC can help you identify vulnerabilities in your email authentication practices and implementing 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 Tangent DMARC implementation can ensure that you’re compliant with these regulations.
Improve Email Deliverability:
