Ive seen the below statement on lots of legal and government documents over the years. Im based in the UK, but presume similar statements are made elsewhere.
[In relation to communicating with this government body via email their FAQ response is] emails are not always a secure form of communication. At present, using email runs the risk of interception by third parties
I used to think this was just a hang over from when emails where new, but in 2019, its a stable widely used technology, and has been for years.
Conversely the same places with statements like this often still accept fax as a means of "secure" communication.
Any idea why email is not considered secure ?
