The pandemic has ushered in a paradigm shift in how businesses communicate with their customers. As organizations in healthcare, finance, and other highly regulated industries rely more heavily on email communication, their employees continue to send sensitive data such as medical and financial information through email. This makes email privacy more important than ever, and there are several ways to implement it, but with varying levels of complexity.

The two primary ways to send a secure email are by encrypting the connection over which email is sent, or by encrypting the email itself.

Encrypting the connection is the simplest way to protect email privacy, and is accomplished using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) and Transport Layer Security (TLS).

However, businesses in highly regulated industries such as healthcare and finance often must take extra steps to protect against accidental exposure of personally identifiable information (PII) such as driver’s license numbers, medical records, and other healthcare or financial information. To meet these requirements, businesses may use PGP, S-MIME or various other methods to encrypt the email message.
