Register for Secure Emails

One of the benefits of networking events is that you come across interesting new products. Here is one spotted by Andrew Henderson.

It’s a secure email service, Regify.

  • It looks good for encrypted messages and traceable delivery.
  • It  avoids the need for complex VPN, GovConnect or key infrastructure.
  • The web mail service seems fast enough.
  • Outlook users can have an add-in
  • Each recipient has to have an account, which is free and simple to enrol.
  • There’s a monthly charge for sending emails – but you can sign up for a free month to start you off.

Quarkside thinks that this would be an excellent Cloud based service for Local Authorities. They could send secure emails to enrolled citizens, suppliers, partners and service providers with a traceable guarantee of receipt. Some citizens might appreciate this as a free secure inbox service to them. Some citizens and suppliers might even be prepared to pay a subscription to send secure emails to Councils.

Security and accountability are high in the governance agenda and it could become part of the infrastructure for voter registration, Universal Credit and service requests. Is anybody  else prepared to give it a try?
