In late June Google will be releasing “confidential mode” in Gmail. Here’s a few key things to keep in mind
– this only prevents accidental sharing of an email, people can still take a picture or screen shot of the content or attachments
– this feature is meant to protect personal or sensitive information but not regulated or legally governed data
– any regulated data (SSNs, credit card numbers, bank information) should still never be sent via email. When in doubt consult the Data Classification Policy and the Regulated Data Storage Chart ( on IT Policies Page http://inside.augsburg.edu/it/policies/ ).
