Me: I don’t want to send that kind of data in an unencrypted email.
Them: That’s okay, you can just encrypt it and send me the password in another mail.
I seriously don’t know what to reply here to be quite honest. It’s the hr department of a tech company.
I don’t really think I’m qualified to explain asymmetrical encryption to someone with little to no knowledge about security but I need to send them the data.
@dysphoricunicorn nah, just write at the end of the email
"The content of this email is confidential. It is intended solely for the addressee, and may be legally privileged. It may not be copied, shared or published whole or in part without the explicit authority of the author"
@dysphoricunicorn "This toot may contain confidential and/or privileged information. If you are not the intended recipient (or have received this toot in error) please notify the sender immediately and destroy this toot. Any unauthorised copying, boosting, disclosure or distribution of the material in this toot is strictly forbidden."
@dysphoricunicorn a usual response in my company is "here is your account name, call me on the phone for a password". It's the best thing we can do without previous key exchange or even encryption infrastructure that works for both sides :/
