Email Encryption

Email Encryption

Does your business process require you to send restricted data to external destinations? Email Encryption is a subscription-based service to help protect sensitive data.

Protect sensitive University data when you need to email it off campus. For example, when sending messages to external recipients that contain:

  •  protected health/patient information (HIPAA) or protected student information (FERPA)
  •  confidential, sensitive or restricted information

 Email Encryption can be used when other secure tramsmission methods are not feasible or practical.

MU Faculty and staff accounts are $0.45 per month.

How to Use

Once Email Encryption is enabled, emails are drafted as normal, including attachments if desired.

Insert the text [secure] in the subject line of the message to be encrypted (brackets must be included). This tells the email system to encrypt the message before it leaves the University.

The recipient receives instructions on how to access your confidential email. These instructions include having the recipient set up a username and password with Cisco.
