Secure emails

About Suffolk County Council's approach to secure emails, and how it is planning for the end of the government's GCSX method of securing emails.

We have a standard secure email system called Office 365 Mail Encryption (OME). Users and organisations use this when they need to decrypt sensitive emails received from us.

Our enhanced system, TLS (Transport Layer Security) sets up a secure connection between your organisation and us. It means that recipients do not need to decrypt sensitive emails.

We also set out how we're preparing to stop using Government Connect Secure Extranet (GCSX) mailboxes, as announced by central government.
