Email Encryption & Privacy Strategies
Email encryption is the process of disguising g email contents in order to protect sensitive information from being read by strangers. This prevents hackers from getting their hands on your information.
In addition to a secure network for your team’s emails, there are certain strategies that can be taken to ensure that your employees’ and company privacy stays that way.
Using creative passwords and two-factor authentication can prevent your email account from being guessed. Avoid incorporating personal information that is readily available from professional or social media profiles in these passwords.
Staying aware of phishing emails is important since its one of the most common ways hackers gain access to your account information. Being able to discern if an email is real or a phishing one can be challenging but spelling errors, awkward phrasing, and email addressed can be common indicators.
Finally, ensure that these private emails are not being accessed on public Wi-Fi. If you want to access emails in a public setting, use your mobile network instead. Regardless of if you’re borrowing a device or you’re on a personal one, remembering to logout is a good habit to develop.
