Email cybercrime is a continual risk to people and businesses and it is sadly on the rise. As a company, we take the security of our IT systems and client data extremely seriously and we are continually investing in technology and staff training to minimize the risk.

As part of our IT Security Strategy, in June 2023 we took the decision to introduce a new secure email system, Mailock by Beyond Encryption. Mailock enhances the security around email communication to our clients, specifically those emails that contain personal and sensitive data, to ensure the utmost confidentiality. It utilises state-of-the-art end-to-end encryption, which is recognised as being up to the National Security Agency (NSA) standard for safeguarding confidential information. This level of encryption ensures that our emails and attachments are securely transmitted and remain protected throughout their entire journey, from sender to recipient.

We have been impressed with the service and technology that Beyond Encryption has provided, and recently our Head of Operations Annemarie Byrne worked with them to develop a case study about how MPA has used the software, our thought process behind wanting to improve our data security, and the impact it has had on our clients.

The full case study is available to view here. If you would like any further information about how we use Mailock in our client communications, please get in touch.
