Blog series: Complexity of email - Part 4: Email Security

The complexity of email - Email security importance

Sending confidential electronic documents may sound as easy as attaching a password protected PDF to an email and pressing send or using your eMarketing platform to send them…

Complexity testing section

There are however more stringent processes, including system security requirements that should be considered when it comes to emailing documents containing confidential customer information.

Security should be considered from the point where the data is transferred and then every step in between.

This includes:

  • Secure data transfer
  • Administration  Portal
    • https
    • Role and permission management
  • Environment
    • Firewalls
    • Secure RCP for inter-server communications
    • Data encryption & secure data storage
  • Reports often contain sensitive information so they need to be sent with secure attachments or using secure data transfer protocols.

See the eDocument security checklist
