Encrypting OSSEC mail notifications with GPG

After reading the SecureDrop security audit announced today, I noted that they GPG-encrypt their OSSEC mail to add an extra layer of protection over the incidents that OSSEC finds and sends alerts for. Neat idea, it never occurred to me. Even though my servers use TLS to transmit mail around, and that I run my own mail server, that traffic still has to hop through some public routes, so why not add more encryption.
