Know your obligations

Regulations concerning confidential communication are more stringent than ever. Non-compliance can be costly, with businesses and individuals liable. Whether you need to deliver information from a staffed contact centre or in automated fashion, knowing your obligations is key.

Encrypt data

The Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) and Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) require businesses to encrypt sensitive data transferred digitally. The ICO can levy fines of up to £17m for non-compliance (or 4% of turnover).

Authenticate recipients

Proof-of-delivery is required by the FCA for certain types of document (e.g., KIDs). The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) also steers businesses to use authentication and prevent unauthorised access.

Record delivery

Retaining records is vital for compliance with ICO guidance. The FCA mandates that regulated businesses record all communications and retain proof-of-delivery to the right person for investment documentation.

ICO General Guidance

Revoke access

By law, a data breach must be reported to the ICO within 72 hours. As the ICO notes, having recourse to revoke a sensitive email sent to the wrong person can contain the breach before it reaches the threshold for reporting.

Support customers

Take responsibility
