During this course, you will learn how to efficiently implement DMARC to upgrade the security of your email systems. DMARC can protect organizations, customers, and partners against identity theft, spam, phishing and malware.
DMARC sits at the intersection of email and the DNS. This workshop takes you through the technical implementation of DMARC and includes detailed information on the entire DMARC technology stack – DNS, SMTP, SPF, DKIM, and DMARC. In addition to technical implementation, the course offers guidance on where technicians can expect to encounter (and how to work with) other teams, vendors, and management layers during deployment.
As preparation for the course, we will ask you to create an account here: https://eu.dmarcian.com/partners/register/dkhostmaster-april-2021 (preferably 2 weeks of data based on a live domain). This will give you data from your own domain for the exercises during the course.
DMARC expert Tim Draegen is the experienced instructor of the course. Tim Draegen is one of the authors of the DMARC standard. He also chairs the IETF’s working group on DMARC and is CEO at dmarcian, a company that helps other businesses implement DMARC on their email systems.
The workshop has a theoretical section, covering SPF, DKIM and DMARC, and a practical section where you will learn how to use DMARC to protect domain names.
We will give you the answers to the following questions:
09.00-10.00: How does DMARC make use of authentication to improve email security using the well-known SPF and DKIM mechanisms?
10.00-11.00: How do DMARC’s reporting protocols help protect your email domains quickly and precisely?
11.15-12.15: How do you install DMARC in your organization?
12.15-15.00: There’s also going to be a breakout session, where we discuss following topics of interest:
• What needs to go into the DNS to make SPF/DKIM/DMARC work?
• Deep Dive SPF
• Deep Dive DKIM
• Deep Dive DMARC
• How to deploy DMARC as the only IT person at a small/medium organization
• How to deploy DMARC at large organizations
• DMARC deployment for project managers
The workshop is open to anyone who works with IT security and has a technical background.
