Every email is vulnerable – theoretically. The journey of an email through the Internet is long, although the speed of transmission often makes this forget. Emails can be intercepted, read, or even modified during transportation. At least if they are sent unencrypted. The consequences may be devastating: Qinthe ancendatous damage, loss of data or loss of image are at risk for all those who exchange e-mails unencrypted. In addition, unencrypted e-mails are already no longer compatible with data protection – also with regard to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
One way to enable secure e-mail communication and send information confidentially and securely is to use PKI-based e-mail encryption and signature. PKI stands for Public Key Infrastructure, and the most common standard for such encryption is S/MIME (Secure/Multipurpose Internet Mail) Extensions).

It goes without saying that the emails also look deceptively real. Although the Federal Fiscal Court’s warning is shared in the social media, the actual range is likely to be limited. The majority of the victims are informed – if at all – much too late. And this despite the fact that the DMARC specification is a freely available technology that could prevent this.
