NIST Issues Draft for Trustworthy Email
By CHIPS Magazine - September 15, 2017
The National Institute for Standards and Technology issued a draft for ensuring Trustworthy Email Sept. 13 which covers and gives recommendations for state-of-the-art email security technologies to detect and prevent phishing and other malicious email messages.

The SP 800-177 Rev. 1 guide was written for email administrators and for those developing security policies for an enterprise email infrastructure.

This revision was produced to include a new appendix with a Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) overlay. This overlay is for administrators of email systems that fall under FISMA and includes references to relevant guidance on specific FISMA controls and how they apply to various email system components.
