With Gramm Leach Bliley Act (GLBA) security issues at the forefront, we have implemented ZixCorp secure email solutions to protect our email communications, ensuring all personally identifiable financial information remains confidential. Secure messaging helps us protect you against credit card fraud and consumer identity theft. It's also an effective way to conduct financial business.
Listed below are some frequently asked questions to assist you.
Why do you need to encrypt email?
Regular email isn’t a private conversation and can be easily intercepted and read by unwanted parties. By law we are required to protect certain types of personal information, but more importantly we believe it is simply a smarter way to do business. In addition, email encryption increases efficiencies by allowing the electronic transfer of sensitive information that has traditionally required slower manual delivery methods. Email encryption is one way Lafayette Savings Bank is taking responsibility to protect your personal information.
What kinds of information will be encrypted?
Our email encryption service will encrypt email that contains sensitive information such as:
How will I get my encrypted messages?
- Personal information, i.e. social security numbers
- Financial information, i.e. account and credit card numbers
When an employee sends you an email containing private information, you will receive an encrypted message notification. You will be asked to click on a link in the email, which will connect you to our secure message center. There you will register a private password to retrieve and reply to your secure messages.
Won’t it be difficult to get my messages?
You will be able to open your encrypted emails in seconds with the confidence that your personal information remains private. Together with our partners at ZixCorp™, we have developed an easy-to-use approach that protects our entire community of interest — our employees, our customers, and our business partners.
What if I already use Zix Email Encryption?
If you already use Zix then you are already part of the ZixDirectory, and will automatically receive secure emails in your inbox and be able to send secure emails back to us transparently.
