What not to send via email

Help protect the Wichita State community by knowing what information not to share via email. Email communication outside of WSU is not guaranteed to be secure since those emails may not be encrypted. Depending on the type of data, regulatory compliance requirements could require additional protection before it is emailed.

Examples of information that should not be emailed are:

  • Social security number
  • Driver’s license number or state ID number
  • Passport number or alien registration number
  • Personal financial account numbers
  • Medical information
  • Date of birth
  • Mother’s maiden name
  • Non-onetime passwords or any authentication credentials
  • Credit card numbers
