Encryption for O365 email

Encryption adds an extra layer of security to e-mails sent through O365 to external e-mail addresses. E-mail users can send confidential communications with an added level of protection against unauthorised access. 

Once the process has been fully tested and endorsed by Information Governance, the service will be made available to schools along with set-up costs.

It is expected were required that schools use encryption on e-mail accounts that are used to send confidential information.  For example, schools may wish to set-up encryption for the e-mail accounts of the school administrator, senior leaders and the SENCO.
