Recently there has been news of White House staff using the messaging app Confide to carry out day-to-day communications, in order to mitigate the possibility of information leaks. Confide is part of the world of Secure Messaging apps, which employ a combination of encryption and other functions to prevent unauthorized access to the messages they send.
Data leaks are becoming all-too-common news events. As a result, the threat of our own information being part of a nationally-publicised breach is a growing concern. Many of us are suspecting (and rightfully so) our most-used messaging apps, such as email, as being inherently insecure, which is leading to the pursuit of alternative platforms that will hold our private matters to a higher standard of security.
This month's BrandProtect Executive Threat Brief looks at secure messaging – what makes it secure, and what you should look for in choosing a messaging platform that will stand against even the most sophisticated of prying-eyes.
BrandProtect Executive Threat Briefs are designed to minimize your exposures by educating you and your team about simple steps you can take to protect your personal information online.
