Read this article https://www.zdnet.com/article/three-out-of-five-tech-workers-share-sensitive-information-by-email/ that indicated that 3 out of 5 IT workers share sensitive information over email (and by messaging). This is so spot on!

I’ve seen insurance, legal, healthcare companies … and even once the management at a data protection companies send sensitive information over email (palm to face!). I generally don’t like to present a problem without a possible solution, but this one is pretty deep seated. Email is so convenient, literally everyone has an email address. So how do you re-train the world to use a new, probably less convenient, but more secure alternative? Re-educate the world and implement the world’s most massive and scaling solution at the same time … talk about hard problems. The sweet thing nowadays the infrastructure to support something like this is available to everyone through things like Azure, now it’s just a matter of who can dream up an elegant, non-disruptive solution.

Whoever solves this will be very VERY wealthy.
