What is encryption?
Encryption is a way in which Tri Counties Bank can protect confidential, proprietary, and sensitive information by transferring it using a coded, unreadable format. Encrypted email can be transformed back into readable form only by the intended message recipient.
Put simply, Tri Counties Bank “locks” a message by authorizing only the recipient with the correct key to “unlock” and view it.
Why use email encryption?
Protecting the privacy and security of employee, client, and business partner information is of the utmost importance to the Bank. In keeping with this on-going commitment, Tri Counties Bank ensures that confidential, proprietary and/or sensitive information, including personally identifiable information (e.g., social security numbers and credit card numbers) are delivered using encryption technology. This enables us to protect this type of information and minimize the risk of potential unauthorized viewing or malicious intervention.
How will the use of encryption technology impact my email?
Secure email recipients should not experience any interruptions in communications with Tri Counties Bank due to the use of encryption technology, and no special software or downloads will be required to receive secure email.
