The DMARC Bandwagon: Who’s Next To Get On Board?

It happened. We are witnessing history.

AOL is the second big mailbox provider to implement a strict “reject” policy on their domain’s DMARC policy in order to prevent the recent spoofing hack from happening again.

What You Should Know About The Heartbleed Security Bug

This past Monday, a new vulnerability in OpenSSL version 1.0.1 called “Heartbleed” was announced. This vulnerability is of particular concern as it could permit a remote attacker to extract up to 64 KB of information from any remote server running OpenSSL software. Unfortunately, this data leakage could include login credentials, private keys and other sensitive information.

Based on the software’s release history, this vulnerability has existed for approximately two years.

I didn’t know what to expect as it was my first time attending such a conference. Nearly 300 attendees were treated to an agenda that was informative, honest, and inspiring.

The show was littered with speakers and attendees from Bush Beans (Jay Bush of Jay & Duke fame), Brown-Forman (Jack Daniels, Finlandia), the CEO of Just Born and Candy Hall-of-Famer Ross Born (Mike & Ikes, Peeps), and Wendy Yuengling Baker (Yuengling, America’s oldest brewery). The list went on and on. Everywhere you turned, an iconic family enterprise like Publix, Meijer, Luck Companies, and the Harlem Globetrotters said hello.

It was awesome networking as these people were filled with pride and commitment to their work.
