Abstract/Description

This article considers the main sources of e-mail security risk, and means of addressing it with particular reference to the creation and deployment of e-mail security policies at a time when lapses in e-mail security have demanded attention in the media. It draws on primary research conducted with two sets of data subjects: (1) e-mail security experts and (2) end-users in a consultancy firm that is heavily dependent on e-mail in its daily business. It concludes with a consideration of key elements that should be addressed when considering issues of e-mail security.
