How to Secure Your Email in 2024


Gmail and Yahoo enforce stricter security on your email server

New email delivery requirements have been announced by Google and Yahoo. Changes are designed to protect recipients from spam and email fraud. That’s why we’re inviting you to a webinar that looks at important factors in email security.

Recent surveys show that many companies and organizations have weaknesses in their email security. These shortcomings could make it impossible to send emails to Gmail- and Yahoo addresses from February 2024.

Given email’s role as a main channel for cyberattacks, it is of utmost importance to both understand and manage these risks and weaknesses. During the webinar, we presented the latest statistics that not only underline this challenge, but also highlight the necessity of effective solutions.

Session Highlights

  • Identification of security flaws in email security: Let’s start by looking at common flaws in email security. The focus is on email as a primary attack vector and the need for effective protective measures.
  • Higher security requirements from large email providers: Google and Yahoo are raising security requirements from February 2024 and there are likely changes coming from Microsoft as well. How do these updates affect email management?
  • Current threat landscape and business intelligence of e-mail threats: We explore current email threats such as Email Domain Spoofing, QR code hacking, and the role of AI as an attack tool, particularly ChatGPT in the development of phishing attacks.
  • Basic Security Measures for Email Domain Protection: Overview of key email protection security measures: SPF, DKIM, DMARC, and BIMI. We explain the features and their use in email security.
  • Reinforcement of existing email protection and new opportunities: We’ll introduce you to how email protection can be enhanced with solutions like Cisco ESA/CSA and Cisco Secure Email Threat Defense, especially for Microsoft 365 users.

After the webinar, we want you to be aware of the new security requirements and understand what to do to protect your users’ emails and continue to send emails to Gmail and Yahoo.
