June 2017 Chapter Meeting

Posted by Administrator Friday, June 9, 2017

On June 22, 2017 the ISSA-KC Chapter members, and other security professionals will hold a meeting at Lidia's in Kansas City to network and attend the monthly chapter meeting, with presentation topic.

Speaker: Caleb Christopher

Caleb is the Director of Technical Operations at information security and risk management firm, Cino Security Solutions Ltd. and is currently the Director of Information Technology at Challenger Sports.  He has 9+ years’ experience in security, has recently spoken at several Information Security conferences, and will have an article published in BoardRoom magazine next month.

A student-at-heart, whatever time he has after work, family, and more work, he spends learning or teaching others.

Topic:  Email Authentication with DMARC

Summary: This presentation will cover SPF, DKIM, and DMARC records (public DNS) that help domain owners whitelist authorized senders, and allow them to specify what to do with emails that don't authenticate properly, as well as provide reporting on all emails sent on their behalf (including those sent fraudulently, which was previously not possible).
Attendees will come away with a clear understanding of the importance of email authentication to prevent spoofed/fraudulent emails (protecting domain reputation) and reduce/prevent phishing certain phishing attacks.  More resources will be made available so attendees can start taking action immediately.
