Do I need to worry about regulatory compliance with my e-mail?

Most likely you do, especially if you use e-mail to transmit sensitive data such as personally identifiable health information or financial data such as compensation information. We should note that the ability to conduct business electronically while ensuring compliance with regulations such as GLBA and HIPAA isn't just about avoiding liability. In fact, it opens up a number of business opportunities by fostering faster, lower-cost client and patient communication, and doing away with courier expenses. For clinicians, attorneys, financial consultants and many other professionals, this kind of secure communications channel can add value in many ways-especially when the encrypted e-mail service is easy to use.
