Wales secures public sector emails

All emails sent across the majority of public sector organisations in Wales are now secure and encrypted following a combined effort between NHS Wales Informatics Service and Public Sector Wales. 

It means emails sent between organisations such as local government, police, fire and NHS are now encrypted between all parties. 
While this ensures all messages are secured, it does not stop any misdirection (sending the email to the wrong recipient) or data leakage (sending sensitive information to the wrong recipient), and staff still need to take care to ensure the correct email recipient is selected.
Work is continuing to ensure NHS Wales can have secure email communications with both NHS England and with private healthcare providers.
