Here are 3 things you need to know about using email encryption in Office 365 for your financial firm.

1. Choosing the Right Plan

Email encryption is not a feature built into every Office 365 plan. You need to select a plan that is Enterprise level or up to provide your financial firm with this powerful tool.

2. Automation

Office 365 email encryption is super simple to use and highly compatible, but it needs to be configured for use in your firm, which involves setting rules that, once triggered, will automatically encrypt emails sent to recipients within and outside of your organization.

3. Compliance

This email encryption feature is secure enough to protect sensitive personal banking information and is compliant with the laws that require all financial firms to protect their clients’ information with encryption.
