Encrypt an email
The reason to encrypt an email is often quite obvious. However, if you think one email is important to encrypt, you might want to consider protecting all emails you have received and sent. Most likely they are stored in a database on your laptop computer. If you lose your laptop, all emails on your laptop can fall into the hands of the wrong people. The easiest way to mitigate the risk is to encrypt your entire hard drive.
How to do it
1. Start by deploying hard drive encryption to your computer. Encrypting the drive on your computer will ensure that all data stored is always secure and private if your computer is ever lost or stolen.
2. Getting an encrypted hard drive is easy. Just sign up for Alertsec’s seven-day free trial. During the software install you can work on your computer as normal.
