You can set a failure threshold value between 10-100.

Security and Compliance Dashboard

The Security and Compliance Dashboard in the Delegated Administrator Admin Console provides an overview of all the recommended security configurations. It displays the overall security and compliance score along with the completion status for each action.

The Security and Compliance Score displayed here is based on the progress made in implementing recommended actions to enhance your department's security. A high score indicates strong security measures against various threats such as spoofing, account breaches, and data leaks, whereas a low score suggests vulnerability to security breaches.

Your department's security score falls into one of four categories:

  • Low: Upon adding and verifying your domain in the Admin Console, certain configurations like DMARC Verification, DNSBL Verification, absence of Trusted Senders, and absence of your domain in Trusted Domains are automatically set up, resulting in a Low security score.
  • Moderate: Following domain verification, the next step involves configuring email security/authentication protocols for all hosted domains. Configuring these settings while in the Low score range elevates the score to Moderate.
  • Good: Achieving a Good security score range entails configuring spam control settings and account-related parameters.
  • Excellent: Completing the configuration of all parameters provided in the Security & Compliance Dashboard leads to the score reaching the Excellent zone.
