250ok published the latest in our DMARC adoption report series, DMARC Adoption Among the Top 100 Law Firms, revealing more than half (62%) of top global law firms use no DMARC policy to protect their clients and employees. While indexing higher in their DMARC usage than the SaaS 1000, global e-retailers and higher education institutions, the highly scrutinized industry’s lack of blanket adoption is a troubling security flaw.
We reviewed and analyzed 100 top-level domains controlled by the top 100 law firms as determined by 2016 revenue and found only 38% used a DMARC policy to protect their email recipients. This is higher adoption than the SaaS 1000 (35% adoption), and significantly better than top US and EU retailers (15.8%), US colleges and universities (11.2%), and top Chinese brands (4.6%). However, considering 38% is still far from even half the reviewed domains, there’s clearly more work to be done within the legal industry.
