Urgent: Compliance and Security Update for Email Servers

ComplianceCopy link

Dear IT Teams,

As part of our commitment to maintaining the highest standards of email communication security and compliance, SavvyMoney is actively updating our email server configurations. We strongly encourage you to review and update your email server settings. This initiative is crucial for avoiding delivery issues and fortifying the security of our mutual email interactions.

Important Update - TLS Configuration and Certificate Verification:

Starting March 31st, 2024, SavvyMoney will enforce stricter security measures regarding email communications. Specifically, we will verify the validity of public TLS certificates and ensure that hostnames match accordingly. This measure is crucial to maintaining secure and trusted communication channels. If your organization's email servers possess certificates that need to be updated or valid according to these new standards, SavvyMoney cannot send emails to your domain. This step underscores our commitment to safeguarding our digital ecosystem against potential security threats.

Recommendations for IT Teams:

  1. Please review and Update TLS Certificates: Ensure all certificates are current and valid and properly match the hostnames to comply with our upcoming security protocols.
  2. Verify DNS Settings: Reassess your DNS configurations, focusing on Sender Policy Framework (SPF), Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting & Conformance (DMARC), and DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) settings. Correct and secure DNS settings are vital for email authentication and protection against malicious activities.

TLS Configuration and Enforcement by Major Providers:

Please remember that major email service providers, such as Office365 and Google, have mandated using Transport Layer Security (TLS) and certificate validation since 2020. If your email servers are not aligned with these practices, we recommend taking immediate action to ensure compliance. Thank you for your prompt attention to this crucial matter.
