Encryption "Critical" for GDPR
Three quarters of organisations plan to expand their data protection capabilities with encryption as GDPR deadline looms.
Email encryption is a “critical” or “very important” business priority for 53 percent of organisations, despite only being used “extensively” by 40 percent of organisations.
Only two in five (40 percent) organisations reported “extensive” use of encryption. When asked what the barriers are preventing more widespread use of the technology, more than half (53 percent) of respondents said “asking too much of the email recipients”, indicating that ease of use for both senders and receivers is still a major issue for businesses.
