As you are all well aware, email has become the preferred method for corporate communication. However, email isn’t a private conversation - it’s easy for others to intercept and read. 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 financial information]. Beginning soon all emails containing sensitive information between Pyramid Federal Credit Union and you will be encrypted. You will be able to receive these encrypted email messages easily through the following method:
You will receive a notification message with instructions to “click here” to open the encrypted email. This button automatically re-directs you to our secure message center seen here: www.portalurl.com.
First time users of ZixPort will need to go through a simple registration process. Once your account is activated, you may view the message and any attachments over a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) connection. Because we have implemented the “remember me” feature, subsequent visits with only require to click “open message.”
In addition to the brief overview we have provided to you above, ZixCorp has provided us with a
ZixAware website containing supplementary information on receiving encrypted emails, as well as frequently asked questions: https://www.uapguide.com/pyramid-federal-credit-union/customer/introduction.
At Pyramid Federal Credit Union we are committed to protecting personal information, and are pleased to provide you this easy-to-use solution. The Call Center is also available to assist with any questions or feedback you may have on this service.
