Does your company have a secure email setup? In order to comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and also to the general mindset of the data protection supervisory authority companies should encrypt their email traffic when sending sensitive and confidential personal data.
And it doesn’t stop there, because nowadays businesses can’t only tell the story. They have to prove their practice down to use level, because stating it in your IT policy is no longer enough. Now, a business has to prove that processes for encryption are in place, and the new regulation will be enforced as of 1 January, 2019, and it applies to both public and private sector businesses.
Secure email and why encrypting your data is so important
Although recently made a part of the GDPR, encryption is not really new to the world. As a matter of fact, encrypted texts have been discovered that date back to before Christ, and present day encryption takes on many shapes and sizes with the sole purpose of ensuring that only the sender and the receiver have access to the content and to make sure that it has not been manipulated while being sent.
The end purpose of encrypting data and information is to protect them from being stolen, abused or used for extortion purposes where you end up paying ransom to regain access to what is yours. All safety measures need to be in place when sending and receiving company emails, especially where personal data is involved.
