Email Security & Encryption

Expand all

The Risk

As a critical means of business communication, email offers the ability to instantly share information both within the organization as well as outside. While it is undeniably a valuable, easy-to-use, productive, communication tool, it is also a major security challenge as organizations are faced with the possibility of email-born viruses/ malware/ trojans, proliferation of inappropriate/ sensitive content, phishing attacks, spam and identity theft.

The exchange of confidential financial and personal information via email, organizational email security and privacy policy requirements, as well as applicable compliance requirements, all demand that organizations employ effective email security and encryption solutions, which will ensure the security and privacy of organizational email communications and will facilitate monitoring and auditing.

Although a necessary control measure, development of employee knowledge and education on email security and privacy does not by itself present a sufficient defense against this risk. Thus, securing and protecting your organization against email attacks should be an indispensable part of your organization’s information security strategy.
