How to Send and Receive Secure Files and Messages
Last Updated 11 months ago

LCC developed an online application for sending and receiving secure files and messages. The application also allows people outside the college to share information with employees. When sending information to someone, the information is encrypted and uploaded to a secure server. Then they are sent an email with a link to retrieve that information. For additional information, see the knowledgebase article, Send and Receive Secure Files and Messages.
