CERTAINTY’S NEW PARTNERSHIP GIVES MEMBERS ACCESS TO CYBER SECURITY BENEFITS

Members of Certainty The National Will Register can now get access to a military grade email encryption service at discounted rates thanks to a new partnership.

Certainty has become an affiliate with Beyond Encryption and in doing so has secured special rates and terms for its members.

Beyond Encryption is a leading cyber security firm which provides a military grade email encryption service called Mailock. The system protects sensitive information sent by email by encrypting it with military-grade protection. As an additional security measure, senders can authenticate their intended recipient’s identity with a question only they know the answer to. It can easily be added into an existing email platform such as Outlook, meaning no extensive training for staff or IT downtime.

Astrid Bowser from Certainty The National Will Register says: “Any tools and services that exist to assist legal and financial professionals protect their clients’ personal data and confidential information should be seriously considered and adopted; particularly where legal and financial professionals increasingly use email communication to correspond with their clients. The simplicity of using Mailock means that there is minimal change to the way the majority of us use our existing email platform.”

Paul Holland, CEO of Beyond Encryption, added: “We’re thrilled that members of Certainty can get access to our system at special rates. It’s a fantastic added benefit, particularly in our post-GDPR world where data protection is more important than ever.”

Email is the world’s preferred communication medium. Some 280 billion are sent and received every day but Beyond Encryption says that sending an email without a system like Mailock is like sending bank or medical information on a postcard in the post.

Paul says: “Most people assume that if their email provider is a big, well-known name that their emails are protected. That’s certainly not always the case. Cyber criminals can read information and attachments sent via email, just like someone in a sorting office could read your postcard. The risks with this are colossal. Often hackers intercept invoices sent via email and change the bank details to their own to steal the money.”

Members of Certainty The National Will Register can rest assured their emails will be safe from invoice fraud with Beyond Encryption. Its Mailock service is now available to members at special rates. To find out more, log in to TOUCH, the online platform for members of Certainty.
