Over the last years, businesses and individuals have stepped into the benefits of a digital presence, not only to promote services but also as a tool to access services from companies around the globe.
This access to services and the continuous integration of traditional businesses to a digital presence has also come with an unexpected associated risk and challenge, which is the collection and management of sensitive information.
Why is this so important?
It is because the main method used by businesses and individuals to exchange information is plain text email (which is insecure!). Consider the average American worker receives around 100 emails per day. In the majority of cases, these do not contain sensitive information but sometimes emails will include confidential information.
How should you exchange sensitive data?
We have already explained using plain text email is a bad idea, so adding a security layer to this process would eliminate any form of risk. To do so, it is best to using an encrypted peer-to-peer transfer service.
When data is encrypted end-to-end, only the sender and the recipient are able to decrypt the information. To get access to it, the message is encrypted in the sender’s client and decrypted in the receiver’s.
This is precisely what Fortknoxster does, it acts as a safe bridge to transfer information peer to peer. You should consider using Fortknoxster if your case is either of the following:
- Your business requires Personal Identifiable Information (PII) from new users. These could be part of a KYC, CIP, or other.
- Your business needs to update Personal Identifiable (PII) information from users.
- Your business requires sensitive information from users or other entities (bank accounts, passwords, etc).
- Your business uses plain text email (i.e. Gmail) to request sensitive information.
- Your business does not have or has not updated the necessary security measures to protect user’s information.
- You, as a person or business, currently use insecure (non-encrypted in the cloud) channels to share sensitive data (i.e. WhatsApp, Gdrive, etc).
- You as a person or business, need to transfer securely (no physical device) large amounts of data (i.e. databases or other back-ups, etc).
- You, as a person, need to share sensitive information with others (i.e. bank accounts, passwords, etc).
- Any form of transfer of sensitive documentation may pose a high risk for both sender and receiver if the information is intercepted.
It is very likely that some of the cases mentioned above need to comply with their local data protection regulation and failing to do so could end up in serious consequences,as you can see in this article.

Whats your status?
Stop for a moment and think about how your organization is collecting user’s information, also think about how is this data protected. If your organization simply contact users to request information via email, you could probably be putting your organization and your clients/user at risk.
