There is one huge problem with Google email, and encryption - the web interface.There are a couple of ways around it1) use an email client, and pick-your-poison end-to-end encyption (PGP, GPG, etc.)2) use a system like zix to send secure messages3) Force all outbound email to be routed through a specific server that can then perform encryption/encapsulation/conte
nt detection, and require that all connections use TLS to encrypt in transit - We use a Sophos Secure email appliance for thisFrank--On Sun, Jan 29, 2017 at 10:53 PM, Matthews, Rick <[log in to unmask]> wrote:And of course, there is always the option of keeping the PII in a linked shared Google Doc.On Sun, Jan 29, 2017 at 7:45 PM, Steve Munson <[log in to unmask]> wrote:All,
I was recently contacted by our HR Benefits Manager asking for recommendations on how to encrypt Gmail due to the inclusion of PII in correspondence. Does anyone have any recommendations on products to perform and/or a perspective on Google's level of security in sending sensitive information?

Doing some quick online research, I have come across the Google Chrome extension Streak as a limited option.
