You’ve likely sent a text to your mom that started as innocent—until autocorrect had some fun with your message. But have you ever sent an email to the wrong auto-completed address? Or written an email while angry and then accidentally replied to an entire group of coworkers? Including your boss?
In the September edition of OUCH!, a monthly security newsletter from the cybersecurity experts at SANS Institute, you can learn simple email etiquette, appropriate for all your personal and professional communications.
Besides basic blunders, SANS also reminds readers that emails aren’t exactly private. Any recipient could forward your message, post it on a blog or otherwise share sensitive information you send. Just take a breath and do some double-checks before you hit send!
