Dear PacNOG list members,
I’d like to share this widely as some of you may be interested in participating in a DMARC bootcamp . Please read on and register to be sent more information about how you can join.

On September 9th, GCA will start a 6-week DMARC Bootcamp. This bootcamp will guide participants to implement a DMARC - an effective way to limit the spoofing of email from protected domains. This bootcamp will guide participants to implement policy level of “none” after becoming acquainted with DMARC within the first few weeks. By the end of the bootcamp, participants will have enough information and confidence to move to the highest DMARC policy level of “reject” immediately or within a few months.
DMARC is considered the industry standard for email authentication to prevent attacks in which malicious third parties send harmful email using a counterfeit address. DMARC stops email impersonation - by implementing DMARC, domains lower the odds of their domains being spoofed and used for phishing attacks on recipients. The result of a domain not implementing any form of DMARC policy is exposing its recipients to possible phishing attacks and, unsurprisingly, 91% of all cyber-attacks begin with a phishing email.
Since June 2016, the Global Cyber Alliance (GCA) has been working to accelerate adoption of DMARCthrough advocacy, by providing a set of easy-to-use tools, and campaigns to drive deployment. GCA also measured the economic impact of DMARC. In just a few short years, GCA’s DMARC initiative has resulted in more than 5,700 organizations across more than 180 countries adopting DMARC. This has led to estimated financial benefits of more than $19 Million USD in 2018 across a diverse array of industries and governments.
Moreover, the $19M estimate is merely from GCA’s activity. GCA’s other partners, including nonprofit organizations, commercial vendors, governments, and enterprises are also deploying and supporting the deployment of DMARC. For these organizations, the most-affected 1% of them will save $302,000 per year solely from reducing business email compromise (BEC) through DMARC, even assuming only 1% of BEC emails lead to action. If that number grows to 5%, the loss reduction for that 1% is $1.3M per year. Adding that up across the Internet is a big number, and that is from BEC losses alone.
Starting September 9, GCA will run a 6 weeks bootcamp to enable organizations to learn about DMARC and support them in its implementation. Every step of the way, GCA and partners will assist with resources and guidance, including multiple webinars and demonstrations.
(Please note that the below is subject to change and additional webinars and resources may be added as needed)
• Timings for Webinars: Wednesday of each week o 7am EST (12pm BST, 1pm Paris), o 12pm EST (9am PST, 5pm BST, 6pm Paris) , o 12am EST (12pm Singapore, 2pm Sydney, AU) The agenda will be as follows:
Weeks 1-2: Getting Started Overview of DMARC, SPF and DKIM
Weeks 3-4: Time to Implement! Demonstrations on how to implement DMARC on Windows DNS, BIND and a Cloud-based DNS Provider.
Weeks 5-6: On Going Management: Analyze, Review and Adjust What to look for in DMARC reports and what needs to be adjusted before moving to an enforcement policy
More details on the modules are here:
Weeks One-Two: Getting Started Sept 10th - Bootcamp introduction and DMARC: An Overview (60 min) This is the first webinar of the DMARC Bootcamp series. We will provide a brief overview of the bootcamp and then an overview of DMARC. Sept 18th - What are SPF and DKIM? (60 min) In this session we will be going over SPF and DKIM. We’ll cover the basics and options of performing DKIM key generation and signing.
Weeks 3-4: Time to Implement! Sept 24 and Sept 30 - DMARC Technical Details and Windows DNS (60 min) In this session we will go over each of the tags for a DMARC policy and then provide a demonstration on how to create the DNS records for SPF, DKIM and DMARC on Windows DNS. Sept 25 and Oct 2 - DMARC Technical Details and BIND (60 min) In this session we will go over each of the tags for a DMARC policy and then provide a demonstration on how to create the DNS records for SPF, DKIM and DMARC on BIND server (Linux). Sept 26 and Oct 3 - DMARC Technical Details and Cloud DNS (60 min) In this session we will go over each of the tags for a DMARC policy and then provide a demonstration on how to create the DNS records for SPF, DKIM and DMARC on Google Cloud DNS and 1&1.comhttp://1.com.
Weeks 5-6: On Going Management: Analyze, Review and Adjust
We will have multiple webinars from DMARC partners regarding DMARC reporting and next steps. Date and times are being set for these.
Additional information and links will be forthcoming as the bootcamp advances. Please register for the bootcamp in order to receive the link for all of the webinars.
