Why Does Japan Need DMARC Protection? 

Email phishing is responsible for more than 9 out of every 10 data loss incidents in the world. That’s more than any other single factor making organizations like yours lose sensitive data. Worse yet, they could be using your brand name to target the general public—your customers—and causing them to lose trust in your brand.

Email Spoofing in Japan is Major Threat

As of May 2020, Japan has just over 4600 domains implementing DMARC, placing it 36th on the list of countries with protected domains. This leaves the vast majority of Japan’s registered domains unprotected against cyberattacks. What’s more, not all users will have it enforced — you’re only DMARC-enforced when you set your policy to quarantine or reject.

DMARC Compliance in Japan

DMARC Compliance in New Zealand
  • Japan is one of the world’s largest economies and an extremely active population on the web, yet their DMARC adoption lags far behind most of their western peers. However, certain interesting developments could potentially boost Japan’s email security compliance to among the world’s highest. 

  • Japan’s two main local ISPs, Softbank and NTT have expressed interest in adopting DMARC. If these organizations are able to successfully implement the standard, it could skyrocket Japan’s DMARC coverage to over 75%.
