Email is not secure. Your bank never emails your statement, right?
Email data can be leaked in many ways.
- Account Hacking: The accounting firm of Chiorini, Hunt and Jacobs recently had their email hacked, leaking customer data including tax returns, W-2s, 1099s, health plan 1095-As, and direct deposit bank account information.
- Re-routing: An employee email account personal finance planning service Aperio had its emails rerouted to an attacker account. The re-routing happened simply due to a rogue click on a phishing link.
- Snooping: Email data can be easily copied as it travels without encryption over the network. Research investigations of over 700,000 email servers have found that most servers have loopholes that attackers can exploit to bypass encryption.
