In order to meet the data protection and privacy requirements set forth in the GDPR as well as other compliance requirements, VINCORION only communicates via email in encrypted form. We use common encryption methods such as PGP and TLS for this purpose. These encryption protocols are supported by most email providers.
We have enforced TLS by default for incoming emails, which means that email communication with VINCORION is, at the very least, encrypted via TLS. This may, however, cause VINCORION to reject emails you have sent to us. This can be due to the use of an outdated TLS version or a lack of TLS encryption, among other potential causes. Your IT department should be able to configure TLS encryption for your emails with little effort. The necessary settings need to be configured on your email server and email gateway. Once this has be done, your emails should be encrypted via TLS. Ideally, you would want to combine TLS with PGP encryption to achieve an even higher level of security.
Instructions on How to Use the Two Encryption Methods
PGP encryption is an asymmetric encryption protocol in which both the sender and the recipient use a public and a private key. The system is actually quite simple – messages sent to the recipient are encrypted using the recipient’s public key and can then be decrypted using the recipient’s private key.
In order to communicate with VINCORION via PGP-encrypted email, we first need to exchange our public keys. You can download VINCORION’s public PGP key from the following link:
