Security Measures When Sending Personal Data through Email

When sending out any personal data through email, staff have to ensure the following steps are taken:

  • Place personal data in electronic file (e.g. Word or Excel) and protect with strong password consisting a mixture of uppercase, lowercase and special characters. 
  • Send the password in a separate email.  If feasible, send the password via a separate medium, e.g. SMS or phone call whereby the identity of the receiving party can be verified.
  • Double-check the recipient list and email addresses. Do use mailing list for regular communications.
  • Use BCC (blind carbon copy) feature when sending to a large list of recipients.
