May I send Confidential Information in unencrypted email?

Level 1 and 2 information may be sent via email.

Level 3 information should not be directly emailed. Instead, store the information in a Harvard-contracted file storage service, limit the permissions to only intended recipients, and share the link via email. Public or so-called anonymous links should not be used. Examples of Harvard-contracted file storage services include g.Harvard apps and Office 365.

Level 4 information may be sent via Accellion. Please confirm that recipients understand and are ready to appropriately protect the data before sending.
