How it works
“Security and continuity of email plays a significant role in the way we interact with our clients. The OnDMARC platform provides an quick and intuitive route to implementation of the widely regarded DMARC framework, simplifying the process without fear of disruption to email flow, and quickly giving visibility to any potential security issues and inappropriate use of email domains.”

Law firms have been put on notice of the increased instances of cyber crime by the SRA
What would happen if your clients and partners found out you'd been the victim of an email phishing attack that used your unprotected domain? If you think it won't happen to you, think again as 91% of cyber attacks start with a phishing email.
From the first quarter of 2016 to the end of the first quarter of 2017, solicitors reported over £12m of client money stolen by cyber criminals
“25% of law firms have been targeted by cyber criminals”, suggesting that the “true figure is likely to be higher”.
A key motivation for the fraudsters spoofing emails is to get money or data out of the recipent.
For clients used to paying your firm for services rendered getting a legitmate looking email with payment details won't seem unusual. Especially if it appears to come from @yourfirm.com. For lawyers an email from a colleague or senior partner urgently asking for information will no doubt be 'business as usual' - but if your domain is unprotected the email may well not be genuine.
With OnDMARC you can make sure than no such fraudulent emails reach the inboxes of your lawyers or clients so they don't lose money and you don't lose revenue.
