Luther, a social worker in private practice, had decided to offer his clients a way to reach him by email. It would be more efficient for him, prevent the frustration of playing “phone tag” and would provide a record of their communications. He created a unique email address and shared it with his clients. He was concerned about confidentiality and researched the pros and cons of different email systems. Ultimately, the most important fact he needed to share with his clients is:
A. He has chosen to purchase his own server as well as to encrypt all messages.
B. He would purchase and install a top notch security system to protect this information from being hacked.
C. Despite adopting the best possible resources, he is not able to guarantee total security of these messages.
D. He would be very mindful of the specific information he included in the email messages, given that he could not assure total security.
