What can be done to better protect organizations and individuals from phishing attacks that start with fake email?

The unfortunate truth is that email technology was not initially designed to be secure. Hackers use many techniques to send imposter email and trick end users. In response, email security technology has evolved over the years to add sender authentication features meant to protect recipients from fake email. While this helps, it’s clear from the headlines that fake email continues to bypass email authentication defenses and in fact, the entire security infrastructure.
