Email security is a topic that has been getting more attention in the media recently. We are also seeing a spike in instances of email based attacks at our customers and I believe that now is a good time to set the record straight on email. I will cut to the chase right here and say that email is not secure. Period. Are there ways to securely communicate using email as a part of the process? Yes. But email itself is inherently insecure and you should consider everything that you send in email as being public.
