- Anti-SPAM, DMARC, email deliverability, email reputation, email sender check, ESP
If you do any business or have any involvement with the Australian Federal Government and your email domain is not compliant then it is likely that your emails will stop being accepted. This is because 16 departments have now implemented to completion the Anti-SPOOF protection for their domains.
The primary objective when implementing the DMARC authentication is to protect staff, clients, stakeholders and suppliers from having the domain used in a business email compromise attack.
One key outcome is the creation of a trusted network of suppliers, clients and third parties. This ensures that invoices, critical contractual obligations that rely on email and any other email type can be relied upon between the members of the network.
We advise you contact any department listed as compliant or currently undertaking the project to ensure you have business continuity.
We can confirm that from 180 Federal Government Departments that we surveyed for the Anti-SPOOF authentication is as follows:
- 16 domains are completely protected (see below)
- 63 domains have started implementing DMARC
- 101 are yet to start
The impact on business can be severe given a DMARC project for small businesses can take up to 6 months to implement. We advise speaking to one of our team right away iof you need to email keep getting to any domain listed below.
