The UK’s Nationwide Cyber Safety Centre (NCSC) has launched a free tool designed to help organisations test whether or not their e-mail safety settings are ample.
The Email Security Check service was launched yesterday by the NCSC, an offshoot of the UK spy company GCHQ.
The software works to search for publicly accessible info on anti-spoofing requirements akin to DMARC to make sure they’re configured correctly. DMARC works to stop scammers from abusing legit domains to distribute phishing emails.
The service additionally ensures that privateness controls akin to TLS are in place on particular domains, ensuring that emails are encrypted in transit.
