TAG Certified Against Malware Guidelines
Released July 2018
(Enforcement beginning January 2019)
What’s New in Version 2.0 of the Certified Against Malware Guidelines?
Version 2.0 of the Certified Against Malware Guidelines clarifies existing requirements and provides new paths to compliance for all types of covered parties. Here are a few highlights:
- TAG has significantly expanded and strengthened requirements related to scanning for malware. Companies will find separate requirements for scanning a reasonable percentage of campaign assets prior to initial delivery, and rescanning throughout campaigns at a reasonable frequency.
- Companies will now be required to disclose to TAG several metrics relating to their scanning and rescanning practices. This will provide TAG with important data upon which to base future requirements relating to scanning and rescanning, ensuring that those requirements are truly in line with industry best practice.
