GDPR - Email Encryption

I'm currently looking at options for 'ensuring' our clients data are secure.  We can use IO2 pfp for some of this, however for emailing professional connections, providers and clients that don't want to use pfp, I'd like to find a way of encrypting emails & attachments.

Having trailed a few options and got very frustrated with most of them (some don't work with any device, or any email or would just a pain for a client) I'd like something that is easy for a client/solicitor to use and works with any device and email, ideally from Outlook.  I have also asked the company we outsource our IT to and they have suggested upgrading 365 to Enterprise 3 and using Azure Information Protection but I have no idea what any of that means or whether it would help.  I'd go with what they say, but previously I've had the feeling they don't listen very well to what I'm asking for so I'd be really grateful for another opinion :smile: 

Help me Obi-wan.  You're my only hope.

    Online Howwow next Wednesday is on GDPR. That would be a good place to ask this. Details out later today.

  • Thanks Richard, have been waiting on the details of that since missing the last MIFID one, caught up with the replay yesterday though.
  • Oh and the client needs to be able to email us back using the same encryption ideally.  I'm leaning towards just sending everything by post, although first I'll need to deliver by hand a wax sealed envelope containing a cipher that will enable clients to decode our letters.

  • So no unicorns then.
  • Best not to use email for sending documents, not really designed for it. Better to use the free WeTransfer (wetransfer.com) service for encrypted file transfer.  If you need to send very large files and want to brand/personalise your version and have pasword protection too, then you can pay £10pm for a Plus version - no limit on the quantity of use either.  Check it out, very simple to use and your clients can use it to send documents back as well.
