GWemail Encryption

GWemail encryption is a service offered to those members of the GW community who need to secure email in transit, due to the nature of their work or compliance requirements.  Once the service is activated on an account, the sender enters a keyword in the subject line of an email to enable encryption of the message and attachments. The recipients of the email would then receive an email indicating that they have received an encrypted email message. To request access to GWemail encryption, please complete the GWemail encryption service request form.
