At Verizon, securing confidential or sensitive information is one of our most important jobs. To make this topic a little more fun we recently developed a series of entertaining videos for our employees that contain messages about why Security Matters. We hope enjoy it.
We’ll launch one Security Matters video a week for the next six weeks on this blog. The topic of the first video is email security, so watch the action as our character “Michael” learns about the importance of encrypting email and taking simple steps to protect sensitive company information – and find out if he can “unsend” an email.

While setting up and putting in place this security measure may seem to be more work, it could prevent confidential information from getting in the hands of unauthorized recipients and possibly save your job. This video shows how an employee inadvertently sent a confidential file to the wrong person – mistakes happen, but if you put in place the right measures, the consequences can be minimized.
Tell us how you ensure security with your employees.
