Your institution’s brand is portrayed to the world via the email that is
sent using your domains. DMARC is a security control you have to protect
the brand of your institution. We will explore UW-Madison’s email
domains as a case study for this TechBurst and learn the strategies
being used to implement DMARC at the nation's 6th ranked research


Jesse Thompson has been on the UW-Madison email team since 2001. He spearheaded the implementation of anti-spam and reliable email delivery for
university students, faculty, and staff. He monitors the anti-spam and
email postmaster industry trends, old and new tactics, and emerging
standards and best practices. He contributes to the Messaging, Malware
and Mobile Anti-Abuse Working Group (M3AAWG) and is the founding
maintainer of the Anti-Phishing Email Reply (APER) project. After the
team’s successful multi-year project to migrate the email service to
Office 365 and consolidate the majority of email/calendaring systems
across campus, Jesse is turning his attention to the next chapter of the
UW-Madison email service: to fight the email forgery & phishing epidemic
and improve the reputation of UW-Madison’s hundreds of email domains.
