The ion8 solution: Lock everything down, from email to employee awareness
First, we’ll have a look at the program you are using for your email and where your email is being hosted. There are certain requirements for secure email that many bargain basement – and even some larger – email hosting providers do not meet. And while Gmail and Outlook are both industry standards for email programs, they need to be configured in a specific way to be secure.
From there, we’ll implement Domain Message Authentication & Conformance (DMARC), which is a set of specific policies for your email. This is rolled out in stages by experienced digital security professionals to keep legitimate emails from being flagged. DMARC works in tandem with SPF and DKIM to ensure that your email is secure and as impenetrable as possible.
Where required, we will also do staff training to help your employees identify potential phishing emails, which are getting more and more sophisticated all the time. The most intelligent people can easily fall for some of the emails that are designed to steal passwords to your business tools, accounts, and more.
Each solution is customized to your business requirements, including ensuring that you are meeting any specific regulations in your industry sector.
