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.
- 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.
