Last week I was at Social Connections in Philadelphia. The Social Connections team once again put on a great conference around IBM social software and extended this time to include security content. I presented two sessions – one around security and specifically SMTP DMARC deployment which I am increasingly being asked to deploy.. My second session was about how to approach GDPR as the regulations come into force in less than 1 month. I tried in this session to speak to a US audience who may not be aware in what ways GDPR will impact their business.
Both sessions are shareed below and I hope you find them of interest /use
An Introduction To The DMARC SMTP Validation Requirements
DMARC is a SMTP security standard being increasingly requested by customers to protect against email spoofing. It uses a combination of SPF (Sender Policy Framework) records and DKIM (DomainKeys Identified Mail). Using DMARC you would publicly specify how your outbound mail is sent and the receiving server would verify that the mail it receives matches your requirements. In this session we’ll discuss DMARC deployments and what to do if your mail server (like IBM Domino or SmartCloud) does not yet support DKIM?
How To Approach GDPR Preparation & Discovery
In this session, presented as a workshop outline, we will walk you through your GDPR responsibilities and how to assess your risk. We’ll give some recommendations on high priority but easy to fix issues and how to discover, secure and take ownership of existing data. At the end of the session we will share the workshop outline to help with your own planning.
