Active Cyber Defence is a world-leading initiative implemented by the NCSC to protect against the vast majority of high volume but low sophistication cyber-attacks. The NCSC have made the MailCheck implementation available for free on the open source hosting site GitHub, so anyone who is minded can implement it themselves. We continue to work with others to expand services to those sectors that need them.
