Secure Communication... Email is the most popular form of electronic communication, but it is not secure. Sending sensitive personal data by normal email leaves you susceptible to cyber-crime and in turn may contravene legislation.
Failure to comply might expose your clients or businesses with whom you work, to immeasurable damage and leave you open to financial and reputational risk. Data protection legislation (GDPR) requires us all to protect our customers’ data.
Unsecured emails do not meet GDPR requirements where they contain confidential data.
Breaching such legislation means infringement fines of up to €20 million or 4% of lobal revenues for your business.
These fines may fade into insignificance compared to the consequential losses that result from reputational damage and the disruption this causes to your customers who expect you to look after their data.
Normal email is NOT Secure … Over 280 billion emails are sent / received every day and many senders mistakenly assume that email is a secure way to communicate.
Even password protected attachments are highly susceptible to cybercriminal attacks and can be easily hacked or breached.
Invoice fraud is amongst the worlds largest cyber-crime activities – such compromise can lead to financial loss and reputational damage.
Inadequate security measures can result in clients suffering losses and as a consequence lead to reputational damage.
We are all guardians of our customers’ and employees’ personal data.
Sensitive data includes any information which, in the wrong hands, could enable identity fraud.
Sending digital information securely is a critical security decision as you are legally obliged to safeguard this data.
