Email Privacy Explained

Email privacy is a broad topic dealing with unauthorized electronic mail access. Unauthorized access can occur while an email is in transit, or when emails are stored on servers and on your personal computer. In today’s cyber world, how do you know if your emails are truly private? How do you protect your communications while ensuring they remain secure once you hit “send”?

How Can Emails Be Compromised?

Today, email often goes through potentially untrustworthy intermediate computers (i.e. email servers, ISPs) before reaching its final destination. When this occurs, there is no clear way for an individual to verify if their communication was compromised by an unauthorized entity. It can be like receiving a postcard where content is visible to everyone who handles it.

How Can You Protect Your Email Privacy?

There are certain technological advances available now that make unauthorized access to email difficult. Secure messaging features should include: 

  1. Transportation Layer Security (TLS) 1.3 protocol.
  2. Industry standard 256-bit encryption
  3. Data Encryption at Rest and in Motion.
  4. Two-factor authentication identity management.
  5. Data Hosting at a FISMA High security rated facility.
