Recruitment & Employment Confederation (REC) takes client security to the next level with Mailock

UK cyber security firm, BeyondEncryption, has announced the roll out of its Mailock® secure emailsolution to REC members and for use at the REC’s London Head Office.

The Recruitment & Employment Confederation (REC) is the not for profit professional body for the UK recruitment industry providing training, accreditation, legal and business services to the recruitment industry.

The announcement was made at the REC’s annual awards ceremony, held at The Royal Lancaster Hotel, and champions the confederation’s initiative seeking to help its members deal with the increasing problems associated with cyber crime.

As an industry dealing with highly personal information on a day to day basis, Mailock® will empower REC and its members to securely communicate using email regardless of whether they are using a laptop, tablet or mobile phone.

Meeting regulatory requirements and the expectations of clients and candidates starts with getting the right advice. We’re very pleased to introduce Mailock®  to the REC network.”
