Sign up for the Online Trust Alliance Email Security Training Academy today.

It’s our great pleasure to announce that we will be hosting the Online Trust Alliance’s Email Security Training Academy on July 9 at our San Francisco office. As a member of the OTA, Message Systems has made it our mission to continuously educate and promote the adoption of DMARC email standards among our clients and the industry as a whole. We were honored to be placed on OTA’s honor roll for two years in a row, and happy to support OTA’s goal of enhancing online trust in the industry and among organizations.

Covering the fundamentals of DMARC, SPF and DKIM, OTA’s full-day intensive training will include case studies from Microsoft, Facebook, Twitter and American Greetings, as well as best practices for implementing, managing and optimizing email and domain authentication. During training, technical details about deploying SPF, DKIM and DMARC will be discussed and attendees will also come to understand the importance and benefits of implementing and managing email authentication.

We believe that online businesses have a responsibility to protect users from phishing and other email abuse.  OTA’s training and guidance has been invaluable to our team and ultimately our customers, said Within 90 days of implementing we were able to block over 100,000 deceptive emails targeting our customers.

Whether you’re an IT or security professional, an email administrator, email marketer or a brand owner, OTA’s email security training offers knowledge for everyone such as:

  • Enhancing brand reputation
  • Communicating with ISPs on what to do with malicious mail
  • Receiving email intelligence reports from ISPs and receiving networks
  • Reducing malicious mail
  • Optimizing email deliverability and clickthrough

If you’d like to learn more about why protecting customers and your brand from abuse is so important, have a look at the 2014 Data Protection & Breach Readiness Guide released by OTA earlier this year. According to the report, 2013 was the worst year for data breaches with 740 million records being exposed. Sadly, 89% of these incidents could have been avoided with simple security best practices such as DMARC email authentication.

Need another reason to register? Here’s one: The early bird discount ends this Friday, July 4, so be sure to sign up before then. Only 10 seats remain at the moment, so the sooner you act, the better!
