Since 7 June 2019, a warning about fake emails can be read on the website of the Federal Fiscal Court in Germany. According to the warning, previously unknown perpetrators send emails with malicious attachments and use the email domain of the Federal Fiscal Court in the sender. 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.

IT security is also on the verge of upheaval, as AI has enormous potential for defending against cyber attacks. The attackers do not rest and use AI to optimise their attacks. Despite all the hype, however, it is often overlooked that users today can already benefit from conventional functionalities that are on a par with AI-supported technologies.
Since Microsoft has already discontinued support for Outlook 2007 in October 2017, we now announce the discontinuation of support for Outlook 2007 for the NoSpamProxy Outlook add-in as of June 30, 2019. If you are still using the Outlok add-in with Outlook 2007, we recommend that you upgrade to a current version of Office or Outlook (at least Outlook 2010) due to the security risks associated with Office 2007.
Digital transformation is the shift towards modern workplaces that respond to technological progress and the realities of people’s lives. However, this shift to cloud-based work should not be at the expense of security or data protection – especially in view of the fact that emails are still the most important gateway for cyber attacks. What can Office 365 do to secure email traffic and protect your business from spam and malware?
