Transferring sensitive data by email

If you must transfer sensitive data by email, consider :-

  • encrypting files using iZip, p7zip, 7zip, gpg.
  • password protecting files - eg Office 2007 and later, OpenOffice, Libreoffice, this is not necessarily secure Office documents' encryption.

IS have instructions for using 7zip.

You should exchange the password separately - eg by phone conversation, letter, pidgeon.
