Warning about phishing attacks on tax prep emails

posted Mar 20, 2018, 11:48 AM by David Honeman

With tax season underway, a cybersecurity advocacy group is warning that vendors of popular tax preparation tools may be unprepared to protect users from phishing scams.

Four out of the eight most popular tax preparation software products don’t employ basic protections against email spoofing, according to testing by the cybersecurity nonprofit Global Cyber Alliance.

GCA tested the domains of the popular programs to check what settings they employ under the Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting and Conformance (DMARC) protocol. DMARC is an industry standard designed to detect and prevent email spoofing.

GCA’s findings, released last week, are as follows:
  • Reject: Liberty Tax
  • Quarantine: Credit Karma, Jackson Hewitt and Tax Slayer
  • None: Free Tax USA and Turbo Tax
  • No policy: H&R Block and TaxAct

The Latest in Cloud Computing

 Late in 2016, Forrester Research stated that cloud computing is in a ‘hyper growth’ phase which will result in revenues of $236 Billion by 2020. They further suggest that most of the growth will come from existing customers who will be expanding their use of public cloud services and capabilities. What impact will this have on information governance programs and professionals? Is your organization fully aware of the risks they should mitigate in moving to the cloud? What advantages does cloud computing bring to the governance of information? This will explore the impact this explosion this will have on IG professionals and their practices. Join us for this iMasters re-broadcast from September and live discussion with other GNO-ARMA members.
