Almost all of the 2020 candidates are using bad email security practices

Was listening the BBC World News on NPR at work last night and heard this story...


Almost all of the 2020 candidates are using bad email security practices
It seems political candidates have yet to learn from the mistakes of the past.

“It is our full expectation that the cyber attacks against the 2020 U.S. presidential candidates will be more aggressive than we’ve seen before because these attackers continue to move away from content-based techniques and towards identity-based attacks, which many cybersecurity technologies cannot detect,” said Armen Najarian, Agari’s Chief Marketing Officer.

The research by Agari found that only 4 out of the 13 presidential candidates were employing the REJECT policy in DMARC; this meant that remaining 9 candidates’ supporters and donors were now vulnerable to phishing attacks. Also, it was found that advanced email security measures such as Advanced Threat Protection and Secure Email Gateways for both Google Suite and Microsoft office 365 weren’t being implemented by the candidates.

Opponents call it an affront to humanity and an effort to criminalize the most vulnerable among us merely for being poor.


After a marathon hearing that took up much of the day, the council voted five to two in favor of the ordinance, with Knudsen and Diaz casting the dissenting votes.
