Electrosoft CEO, Dr. Sarbari Gupta, will present at the (ISC) 2 Security Congress. The three-day virtual conference will take place Oct. 18 – 20 and is expected to draw thousands of cybersecurity thought leaders from around the world.
“Standard email protocols have multiple weaknesses and spoofed emails can lead to serious cybersecurity and business compromise,” said Dr. Gupta. “This session will discuss practical tools, techniques and protocols to achieve a higher level of protection against email spoofing.”
SESSION: Should You Trust That Email? Technologies and Strategies That Can Help Decide
WHEN: Tuesday, Oct. 19, 2021 | 10:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. ET
WHERE: Online. This is an all-virtual event.
Email protocols (such as SMTP, POP, IMAP, MIME) were designed to deliver messaging functionality rather than security. It is relatively simple to spoof a sender and/or their domain using email. Yet, the bulk of business communication remains driven through email. Email is also the primary vector used for malware attacks, phishing attacks, business email compromise and other attacks. What to do? Can you trust the source of the email you received?
We discuss strengths and drawbacks of existing technical standards (such as SPF, DKIM, DMARC) to prevent email spoofing and secure email protocols such as S/MIME. We discuss AI/ML- and reputation-based approaches to improve confidence in email origination as well as a novel known sender-profiling approach that can further protect a user against email spoofing.
