Have You Implemented Email Encryption?

Have You Implemented Email Encryption?

If you don’t take measures to secure your email, you could potentially give up crucial information to anyone lurking on the same network as you. This is inevitable on public Wi-Fi connections, or anywhere data is in transit. Encryption is the best way to make sure that your organization’s communications are secure, so you absolutely want to encrypt your email.

Why Does It Matter?
Encryption matters for the express purpose of keeping your communications as private as possible. Your email provider may or may not offer encryption by default, but there’s never a good reason to expose your business’ data to dangerous entities. While you’re putting your business’ data at risk, you could also be putting your business itself at risk due to data privacy regulations.

Long story short, encryption is critical if your organization wants to avoid the dangerous part of the Internet. This includes hackers, who will go to great lengths to steal your business’ data, despite the protections that your company puts into place. Therefore, it’s incredibly important that your company put these measures into place so as to improve the chances that you are able to keep your business secure.

How Does Encryption Work?
To explain encryption, we’ll use the locked box analogy. Imagine that you have a box containing your emails that can only be unlocked by someone with a special key. Whoever you send the box to has the key, and it will be unlocked upon receipt. Even if the box has been intercepted, it can’t be opened without the right key, meaning that the thief won’t have any use for it.

The most important part of encryption implementation is that it needs to be applied to your entire infrastructure. If you only encrypt messages that contain sensitive information, you’re only making yourself a larger target. If you do choose to implement an encryption system, it should be associated with more than just your email security.

We can help your business implement a quality email encryption solution designed to augment your security and privacy. To learn more, reach out to us at 204-772-8882.
