US government updates secure email guide for first time in a decade

The best of it is?

That here in the UK central guvmint, local guvmint, voluntary sector, ... organisations tell you that your data are confidential.

Then say "Can we email you that (confidential) report."

Or even worse still?

"Yeh, I'll scan it and send it to main office/sub-office/partner/ ... by email attachment.

If asked do they use encryption

"What's that? Oh password protected - no we can't send or receive any password protected emails - policy innit"

Sort of undermines Private & Confidential stamp that they put on things no?

Or is it just me?

PS: my insurance agency at least makes the attempt to password protect documents that I give permission to be sent by email attachments.
