For the past few weeks I have included the following message in my email signature:


Unless this email is encrypted, it will
almost certainly be read by multiple unknown
third parties; archived, processed and any
information contained in the email used for
purposes unknown.

If this makes you uncomfortable, please
read up on OpenPGP and email encryption. I
am happy to help you get started.

Please also read my data jurisdiction

This is to draw attention to the fact that nearly all traffic that crosses UK and US borders is intercepted and read by the government, and in the case of the US, used for economic as well as political espionage.

If this makes you uncomfortable, and it should, especially if you’re using email for business, you should look at implementing email encryption throughout your company, and training your staff accordingly.
