Transmitting private information via email is sometimes necessary, despite the risks it represents. A ubiquitous tool used for data exchange in the modern business world, many companies insist on receiving information and documents in emails.
By refusing to use email for data sharing, businesses can alienate potential partners and clients, so to avoid this unwanted situation it is vital to adopt a solution that ensures any information sent is sufficiently secured.
In the next sections, we’ll take a closer look at the best way to relate sensitive information to recipients over email. Read on to ensure your communications remain private and protected.
Encrypting email messages
Cybersecurity experts concur that end-to-end encryption is the best option to secure emails. When an email has been protected with this type of encryption, a sender can ensure that only their intended recipient can read the content. If an email is sent to the wrong address or is stolen by a hacker, its contents will remain indecipherable. By issuing your recipient with a public encryption key for their sole use, you can ensure you data stays in safe hands.
Encrypting email attachments
Many email solutions will only encrypt the body copy of communications. However, it is often email attachments that contain sensitive data. From spreadsheets packed with personal information to invoices and company contracts containing financial figures and account details, the encryption software you choose must always protect any attachments sent.
