Why you should 

use Verji to 

communicate

As a customer or client, have you received an invitation to use Verji for secure communications?

Today there are many accountants, auditors, and lawyers who have started to use Verji in order to communicate in a secure way. Many more sectors of industry are following the trend.

As a customer or client, have you received an e-mail containing information that someone would like to use Verji to communicate with you? If you have, you might be wondering why you should communicate using Verji. Why is it necessary to become familiar with something new, when using e-mail has been sufficient until now?

The Norwegian Data Protection Authority has issued the following statement: "If you wouldn’t write it on a postcard, then you shouldn’t send it in a traditional e-mail."

The authority also says: “Unencrypted e-mail does not go directly from sender to receiver. It passes through many different hubs before reaching the receiver. Communication like this can easily be monitored.”

4 important reasons to start using Verji

Act in compliance with privacy and personal information laws

  • The EU’s new GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) directive has resulted in the issuance of a law governing personal information

  • It is no longer permitted to send information or documents that contain personal data such as ID numbers without using encryption

  • Both communicating parties are obliged to comply with the new laws, and with Verji communications will be encrypted in both directions

Avoid fines by communicating in compliance with the law

  • If you or your customers decide to send information or attachments that contain personal unsecured information, your business risks receiving a fine the equivalent of up to 4% of turnover

  • As of the beginning of February 2021, almost as many GDPR related fines were issued as for the whole of 2020. This reflects the enhanced focus of the Norwegian Data Protection Authority in relation to secure communications.

Avoid fraud when making payments

  • CEO fraud or Business E-mail Compromise can sound like a remote problem, but it is anything but far away in today's digital world!

  • Millions are lost every week through such fraud

  • It occurs through hackers monitoring e-mail information over time and sending false payment instructions

  • False instructions based on hacker monitoring are very credible, thus enabling payments to be made without checking the authenticity of the e-mail providing payment instructions

Communicate easily, effectively, and securely

  • Verji is a tool that is easy to use while providing you with unique possibilities to secure, make effective, and organise your communications

  • You can

    • Communicate without being concerned if your messages contain personal information

    • Send messages to individual persons

    • Create group rooms and easily communicate with several persons

    • Send all types of attachments (PDF, Word, Excel, PowerPoint files, scanned documents, images, videos etc.)

    • Easily exchange documents that should be signed and returned

    • You safeguard not only the integrity of personal information but also sensitive company data

Brief information about CEO fraud

Explained briefly, CEO fraud is the hacking for information of e-mail accounts connected to a company’s chairman, managing director, or financial officer. Once obtained, the hackers carefully observe the payment practices used by the company.

When the hackers have become familiar with the company’s routines, they start their scam by instructing management to make false payments.

Several hundred million kroner is swindled in this way in Norway every year, and it is a trend that is on the increase.

This is why it is important to establish a communications channel that cannot be monitored, which entails end-to-end encryption. To maintain secure communications for you as a customer/client, your accountant, auditor, or lawyer has started to use Verji.
