Beyond GDPR: Denmark Makes Email Encryption Mandatory

On the heels of GDPR, Denmark’s Data Protection Agency announced that it will set even tighter rules for emails containing sensitive personal data. The agency has recommended the use of email encryption since 2008, but starting January 1, 2019, encryption will be a requirement for all emails that contain sensitive personal information.

It’s the first time a country has made email encryption mandatory—and another indicator that the protection of subscriber data and privacy can no longer be a second thought for email marketers.
