Whilst the Australian Federal Government lags behind it's peers, Australia Local Government has taken up the charge of protecting email users and their constituents by implementing a protected DMARC p=reject policy.
Amongst the 5 now compliant and secured email domains, in May 2018 when surveyed, only 1 of the councils, Narromine City Council, was compliant. Brisbane City Council, had started the process and none of the other remaining 5 councils had a DMARC record.
There has also been an increase in Councils beginning the Anti-SPOOF authentication process from 23 councils to 32, a net increase of 39% but the figure is a long way short of the 537 Councils surveyed.
