Email Fraud – Spring 2021

Email remains one of the most powerful means of communication. This explains its rise during a year of global pandemic, as well as the fact that email remains a primary access point for hackers.

Skysnag analyzed combined data from millions of DMARC aggregate reports during 2020 to get a sense of the overall level of domain spoofing in email traffic.

Key Findings:

  • Suspicious and possibly fraudulent sender identities are used in at least 1% of global email traffic.
  •   Domains without DMARC compliance are 4.75 times more likely to be the target of spoofing attempts than domains with DMARC enforcement.
  • More than 1.28 million domain owners have enabled DMARC for their domains around the world.
