How do I encrypt my email?

You should never send sensitive information (including attachments), such as but not limited to personally identifiable information, passwords, student educational records, or health information via plain text email. When sensitive data must be sent over email, you should always encrypt the transmission of the data. Please take a look at the appsforVCU Encrypted Mail article for detailed instructions on how to send secure and encrypted emails using Gmail.
