The American Bible Society chooses the Striata Document + Solution for the secure delivery of sensitive documentation via encrypted email.

Sending confidential documentation via normal email is a very real and potentially disastrous security risk. Email can easily be intercepted, rerouted, copied, changed or even deleted, en route. Email is the ubiquitous business communication tool of this century Email is an essential and integral part of any business communication infrastructure, and has become one of the most mission critical tools available to any corporation, both internally & externally. Why does email need to be secure? There are many messages that remain outside of the realm of email, due to the confidential nature of the documentation. These may include contracts, financial information, personal medical and other customer information, human resource related documentation etc. Secure email gives one the ability to send all of these types of documents quickly and confidentially, resulting in meaningful cost and time savings. There is a feeling of anonymity when it comes to email, mostly because of the large volumes delivered. This has created a false sense of security with respect to the confidentiality of the medium. Many individuals are therefore dangerously using email to send sensitive information. Trust and security are key elements to mitigate the risks of accidental or fraudulent exposure of confidential information. There is potential danger to brand equity and the consideration of regulatory compliance. A company that can authenticate and secure the delivery of such documentation via email has a strong competitive advantage to entrench its relationships with customers, partners and suppliers. Is your company at risk? Do you comply with the required legislation? There is significant recent legislation requiring companies to secure communications pertaining to sensitive information. These include: - Sarbanes-Oxley Section 404 places an emphasis on internal control, reporting and data access. Companies looking to achieve good corporate governance can use securely encrypted email and digital signatures to mitigate security risks, by providing their key staff with the necessary tools. - HIPAA - Gramm-Leach-Bliley - California SB-1386 - PIPEDA (Canada) There is specific mention of secure email in most of these and some even go so far as to detail penalties for not doing so. There is a growing understanding of the risks of not securing certain types of email content & attachments. By encrypting email in transit and storage, companies can reduce their risk of dangerous exposure. When do you need to start securing your sensitive email?
