Today we’ll take a look at anti phishing policies which can be configured in Office 365 for protection against

  • 1. User Impersonation
  • 2. Domain Impersonation
  • 3. Domain Spoofing

User Impersonation : User Impersonation configuration allows organization to list down their top executives like CEO, CFO, Directors etc and any emails coming with the exact same display name and going to users will be quarantined/delivered to Junk as per the configuration.

Domain Impersonation : Domain Impersonation configuration protects against emails coming with similar typosquatted domains like yours. For eg. your organizations domain is Contoso.com and attackers may send emails after registering similar looking domains like Cont0so.com, Contoso-inc.com etc.

Domain Spoofing :  Domain spoofing configuration enables domain authentication like SPF, DKIM, DMARC to be enforced validating the origin of the emails as per the from address and block/quarantine/junk those emails which fails authentication.
