In order to maintain the confidentiality of private information sent via email, while ensuring compliance with privacy and regulations such as HIPAA, HITECH Act, GLBA, State Data Security Laws, we are implementing a new email encryption service through Zix Corporation, the leader in email encryption services. This service will help us protect outbound email containing sensitive information, such as social security numbers, driver’s license numbers, and medical information.
Beginning on December 3rd, 2015, all emails containing sensitive information between PSB and you will be encrypted. You will be able to receive these encrypted email messages easily through ZixPort.
It’s important for us to note that if you are currently a ZixCorp gateway customer, then all encrypted email messages between our organization and you will be sent securely and delivered unencrypted in your inbox, just like any other email you receive.
At PSB we are committed to protecting personal information, and are pleased to provide you this easy-to-use solution. Our staff is also available to assist with any questions or feedback you may have on this service. If you need assistance please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Receiving Encrypted Email
When we send you an encrypted message, you receive a notification email with instructions on how to open the message. The notification message arrives in your email Inbox. You select Open Message in the notification to go to the Secure Message Center and view your email.
You must go through a one-time registration process.
After you register and sign in, your message opens and you can view the message details and reply.
Secure messages will expire 30 days from when they are sent.
Sending Secure Messages
You can send an encrypted email to recipients at our organization from the Compose tab within the Secure Message Center. When you select the Compose tab you are taken to a page where you can compose your message.
You can access the PSB Secure Message Portal here:
