mention altering employee work habits-it
is best to pursue the low-hanging
fruit. A good first step toward a
more secure workplace can begin
with encrypting your email.
WHY ENCRYPT EMAIL
Emails are like postcards. Send a
postcard from the Grand Canyon to
your family back home and anyone
who sees the postcard can read or
tamper with its message. Emails sent
through the web are just as visible and
vulnerable, apart from encryption.
Think about how often your business
sends sensitive information
over email: contracts, personal
financial information, passwords,
account
reputation. So it is both in your best
financial interest and your responsibility
to take reasonable steps to
protect privileged information.
Clients, vendors and partners
information, proprietary
documents, intellectual property,
quotes, health information, etc. It is
obvious to see that losing that information
could be harmful to your clients,
your business and your personal
expect a certain level of confidentiality
around their data. The following
attributes of encrypted email help
ensure that confidentiality:
* Message Integrity: The message
should be tamper-proof.
* Sender Verification: The receiver
should feel confident that the
sender is legitimate.

* Receiver Verification: The sender
should feel confident that the
message is viewable only by the
intended recipient.
* Message Control: The sender
should always have control of the
content and have the ability to
retract the message.
* Message Audit Trail: The sender
should be able to know who read
the email and at what time.

WHAT TO ENCRYPT-DATA
LOSS PREVENTION
How do you know what to encrypt?
How could your users know what to
encrypt? Data loss prevention tools
can simplify the process of encrypting
the right data by examining all
the information that leaves your network.
With certain policies in place,
data loss prevention tools will alert
you if an email being sent contains
information that should be encrypted.
Without data loss prevention in place,
your business stands a much greater
risk of sending sensitive information.
With it, an encryption policy becomes
significantly more user friendly.

HOW TO ENCRYPT EMAIL
There are many ways to encrypt email
messages: policy-based encryption,
manual encryption with keywords
or phrases, Transport layer Security
and other methods. Historically, the
problem with encryption was that
it was too complex. Modern tools
have one-click verification features
that make the process much simpler.
Granted, it is best to speak with a
qualified information technology or
security expert you trust to help you
