How comfortable do you feel, sending confidential information via email? I know that I try only to ever send my bank account details and SSN to the very highest of Nigerian princes, just in case the email goes astray.
Well, according to a small survey of attendees of the ISPA’s annual Parliamentary Advisory Forum, they share your fears in sending sensitive emails.
Fear of high-profile security scares (27 per cent), a lack of adequate security offerings from ISPs (24 per cent) and the inability to guarantee sender/recipient ID (33 per cent) were cited as todayâ€™s top three obstacles to mass user adoption of email for confidential communications.
However, hope is on the horizon, with many believing email will become more secure in the future.
