Protecting Customers from Phishing Emails: A Thorough Explanation of BIMI/DMARC, the Special Remedy for Phishing Emails

Yukimi Sota

Chief Security Evangelist Japan

Proofpoint Japan K.K.

Japan has been slow to adopt BIMI/DMARC, which can protect not only its own organization but also its customers and business partners from email fraud. With the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) requiring credit card companies to strengthen their DMARC measures, it goes without saying that DMARC is effective for all companies that use email for business communication. Proofpoint, which has the highest rate of DMARC implementation support for Fortune 1000 companies, will thoroughly explain the significance, effectiveness, implementation/operation procedures, and key points of DMARC.

Takanori Hirai

Senior Presales Engineer

As the value of data and the importance of its utilization become well known, the question arises as to how quickly scattered data can be utilized. However, because data is important, mishandling it will incur a large penalty. What is required now is to simultaneously achieve the contradictory goals of promoting data utilization and strengthening data governance. In this presentation, we will introduce solutions by logically managing data with case studies.

Web 3.0 is becoming a hot topic across the industries in Japan. Crypto assets constitute a key fundamental layer of the Web3.0 concept. DLT/Blockchain, technical platform of the crypto assets, may potentially give a disruptive change into the financial markets and many cases of Proof of Concepts have been taken place to potentially adopt this new technology into the traditional securities and payment markets.
