Director of Finance – The Importance of Encrypting Your Emails

By Marc Lucio –

Encrypt your emails that contain sensitive information. As the Director of Finance for Contigo Technology, I regularly deal with bank accounts, payment information, social security numbers, and other sensitive data. All businesses have similar types of data regardless of the vertical and can be at risk. As part of our service, we offer the ability to Encrypt messages via email directly from a button on the Outlook ribbon. Encrypting a message basically encodes a message so it cannot be read by people for who the message is not intended. This button provides a convenient way to protect data that is emailed outside of the organization, especially sensitive information. This added layer of security is essential in today’s business environment as bad actors are constantly looking for ways to steal data and access networks. Whether you use Contigo’s solution, the Office 365 solution, or something else, please use email encryption as part of your defense-in-depth strategy. If you want to learn more about email encryption or you’re a Contigo client that needs a refresher on the use, give us a call today and we’d be happy to help. Stay safe out there!
