This free email encryption whitepaper from Osterman Research discusses key issues around the encryption of both email and file transfer systems, some of the leading statutes that require sensitive content to be encrypted, and suggestions for moving forward with encryption.
Today's confidentiality and privacy requirements drive organizations of all sizes and industries to secure sensitive data in email. Often particular types of data need to be encrypted, such as credit card numbers, intellectual property, or client information. Organizations also need to protect confidential emails for particular groups, such as executive management, human resources or legal departments.
Many organizations are turning to policy-based encryption to meet their encryption needs because it automatically encrypts data using content filtering rules that identify types of content or email for particular groups. Encryption is applied when the rules are triggered. With policy-based encryption, organizations avoid relying on individual users to secure important content.
