answer text <p>In order to establish the merits of storing government data with a contracted private sector cloud company, departments should use the <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/technology-code-of-practice/technology-code-of-practice" target="_blank">Technology Code of Practice </a>principles and follow the government <a href="https://www.gov.uk/guidance/government-cloud-first-policy" target="_blank">Cloud First policy</a>. Both of these policies provide clear guidelines of the things a department should consider, recognising that there is not one single solution for all departments.</p><p> </p><p>It is the responsibility of each government department to take risk-based decisions about their use of cloud providers for the storage of government data up to “OFFICIAL” level. When considering a commercial provider, departments should take into account the cloud security principles developed by the National Cyber Security Centre (<a href="https://www.ncsc.gov.uk/guidance/implementing-cloud-security-principles" target="_blank">https://www.ncsc.gov.uk/guidance/implementing-cloud-security-principles</a>).</p><p> </p><p>Finally, the solution must provide the best value for the taxpayer.</p>

answer text <p>Active Cyber Defence (ACD) is a collection of services implemented by the NCSC that aim to protect the UK from the high-volume commodity attacks that affect people’s everyday lives. Mail Check is one of these services which enables an organisation to authenticate the email they send so that a receiver can determine if it is genuine or fake using Domain-based Message Authentication Protocol (DMARC). The NCSC plans to implement Mail Check for all 44 Central Government departments - in December 2018 95% were actively using Mail Check and 80% had adopted a basic DMARC policy.</p> more like this
