This week’s tip is a reminder to encrypt any sensitive data when stored and transmitted. This goes for internal emails also, not just information leaving the UTHSC system. The use of the vault (https://vault.utk.edu) is the best way to send confidential files quickly and securely. You can also encrypt emails by adding the word “encrypt” to the subject line of any email from the UTHSC domain.
