When you want to send sensitive information to a colleague, friend or family member, do you trust it to email? When you want to send a password to someone that couldn’t hear it over the phone, do you embed it in a document and hope that nobody will find it?
If you value the security of data you send to others, make sure you send it securely – email is actually not a secure medium, so never trust passwords to it. Protected Word documents can be easily opened as I recently found out when I forgot the password to an old file, but was easily able to open it using an online service.
