Discretion is the Better Part of Valor

This paraphrased list of “Do and Don’t” was targeted specifically to secure exchange of sensitive financial information. However, these are generally applicable suggestions for law-abiding people who don’t want to blather their personal business all over the internet:

  1. Don’t email directly from work.
  2. If emailing using work resources does not violate your employer’s network security policies, use a web mail provider that offers SSL encrypted browsing. Ever heard of hushmail.com?
  3. Don’t use your employer’s resources for personal communications of a sensitive nature e.g. to your attorney.
  4. Use robust encryption, such as PGP keys for email (PGP = Pretty Good Privacy?)
  5. If you use Instant Message, a secure chat client will give peace of mind.
