When consumers think of cybersecurity they often think of their credit card information on apps and websites, but what often doesn't come to mind is email security. This past year there have been multitudes of data compromises all due to the theft of consumers PII, otherwise known as your online identity. In 2019 this will continue to be one of the biggest risks for businesses and consumers.
Outside of social media, email security is one of the top ways we communicate online. A consumers' email address is their online ID. Think of the information people send over via email: address, bank information, health information and documents, legal information, etc. Tracking and postmarking electronic communication is a great way to secure your emails to make sure they are going where they should-and to whom they should.
At the very least, make sure you're sending a secure email by encrypting your attachments. Consider the types of attachments commonly sent over email: legal records, driver's licenses, W4 forms, real estate records, corporate financial records, credit card information, addresses, health records, social security numbers, etc. These sensitive pieces of data and information are exactly what hackers target.
