Hi Zimbra Customers, Partners & Friends,
3 million emails are sent every second. That is a lot of data, personal info, critical business info and more. When a Microsoft or Google email outage happens, it’s headline news. Thank goodness email is generally considered to be 99.9% reliable.
Reliability is just one part of email security. To keep your email data safe, consider …
- Backup & restore. What if your email does crash? Will you lose years and gigabytes of info? Does the thought make you shudder in fear? Is your email backed up? Can you restore it following a crash?
- Email security & privacy. Spam, spoofing, phishing, malware, viruses … email threats continually evolve. The recent Colonial Pipeline ransomware attack cost the company a $4.4 million ransom payment (with nearly half recovered after), and other attacks have shut down schools, hospitals and government agencies around the world leading to billions of dollars and untold terabytes of data loss. The threats are real. Install updates and follow basic email security rules.
- Data sovereignty. Data is subject to the laws and regulations of the country where it resides. If you live in Europe, but your email provider’s data center is in the US, your data is subject to US laws and regulations. Where is your email data stored?
Are you backed up? Is your email secure & private? Do you worry about data sovereignty? If you have questions about email, just let us know firstname.lastname@example.org!
