ITCS and Vidant IS Implement Email Enhancements

Begins TODAY, Monday, May 1

ECU Information Technology and Computing Services (ITCS) and Vidant Information Services (IS) have partnered to implement two significant email enhancements.

Beginning TODAY (Monday, May 1, 2017), the following changes become effective:

  1. Vidant Health and ECU employees are no longer required to log in to a secure portal to retrieve an email that contains sensitive information when the email originates from Vidant Health or ECU. Employees are to continue following their respective organization’s standards and procedures for sending and receiving emails that contain sensitive information.
    See the Email Encryption Standard website for more information.
  2. Vidant Health and ECU employees may now “busy search” Outlook email calendars across the two organizations. Please note, employee availability in Vidant and ECU Outlook email calendars is searchable by default.
