    What is e-mail Security?
E-mail security is characterize as the preservation of:

   • Confidentiality
       • ensuring that information is accessible only to
         the those authorized to have access.
   • Integrity
       • safeguarding the accuracy and completeness of
         information and processing methods.
   • Availability
       • ensuring that authorized users have access to
         information and associated assets when
         required.

Why is e-mail security critical?
• Messaging security as a lose-lose proposition, if no serious
  attack, senior management dismisses IT’s success as "just
  doing their job”
• If there is a failure, IT receives immediate negative
  feedback from senior management, employees, and
  outsiders
• Employee purchasing hidden infrastructure just makes
  things worse
• Freeware, shareware, & open source software just move
  the cost from purchasing to staffing

            Antivirus Guidelines
• Always run a corporate antivirus software solutions.
• Do not open suspicious file attachments
• Do not open an e-mail message unless you know who it is
  from. Opening it signals that your e-mail address is active,
  and more Spam will follow
• Do not reply to or forward junk e-mail
• Be careful about giving out your e-mail address. If possible,
  spell it out rather than use the @ symbol. For example: john
  at email dot com
• Investigate getting software to block and filter e-mail. Some
  are free, but you have to pay for the most sophisticated
  shields
• Always scan floppy drive from unknown source for viruses
  before using it.
