What services are available to secure my information?


DMARC (Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting and Conformance), SPF (Sender Policy Framework) and DKIM (Domain Keys Identified Mail) allow agencies to assess the hygiene of all email sent externally using their DNS domain names including the ability to know when their email or web domains are being spoofed and potentially used in phishing attacks.

To assist agencies in configuring appropriate DMARC, SPF and DKIM records for their domains and having visibility to the hygiene state of their external email, the QGCIO Cyber Security Unit have centrally funded access the web-based DMARCAnalyzer Service (https://www.dmarcanalyzer.com).
