Protecting Your Brand Against Threats

Your brand has a reputation and beware, because criminals want to ruin it through email. Yes, unfortunately, there are a lot of bad people sending email out there. We like to classify them into three categories: spammers, phishers (or scammers) and spoofers.

You’re already familiar with spammers, they send you unsolicited email. Phishers try to get you to divulge your personal information. Lastly, Spoofers impersonate your brand and send email as you to your customers in hopes of phishing, scamming or worse, bringing your business to its knees. Yikes! Sounds like a security nightmare, and it is.

When your email is spoofed, your reputation gets tarnished among ESPs, which means sending even legitimate email will be hard. This can be worse than having your company’s servers hacked.

Don’t fret because there are things you can do to prevent these types of security breaches from happening to your brand and they’re incredibly easy to set up.

In our upcoming webinar on February 7th, Bulletproof Your Email in 2017, join SparkPost CISO Steven Murray and ValiMail’s CEO and co-founder, Alex Garcia-Tobar, as they talk about the importance of email authentication, how impersonation attacks can slip through conventional defenses, and how to protect your brand against various security threats in 2017.

So, in this upcoming webinar we’ll review:

  • Different types of security threats we’re seeing
  • How this impacts your brand’s reputation
  • How to combat these criminals and protect your email and your brand
