Hello class,
Most organizations set up confidential e-mails as a specific way to protect company information when talking to other employees. As a result, in order to protect and label these e-mails, it would require methods that would ensure no leaks and no attacks from outside inteference. One way that organizations use to protect e-mails is to encrypt the data that is sent to another person. This method is incredibly useful since it protects confidential information from hackers and other cyber threats as there is no way to view the information sent without a decryption key. Another method organizations can use to protect confidential e-mails is to start blocking deceitful e-mail addresses. There are often problems where it may be hard for employees to distinguish between e-mails that are authentic or fraudulent, which is why it is important to set up a system where unverfiied emails directly go into the junk folder and other important emails be sectioned and so on. 

There are some laws and legal requirements that every organization must abide by to ensure protection. One such law is the General Data Protection Regulation which is known to be the toughest privacy and security law in the world drafted in the European Union. GDPR applies to everyone not in the EU and also has high penalties if a organization ends up violating and of the data protection principles. Some of the principles outlined include lawfulness, transparency, accountability, integrity and many more. Another requirement organizations abide by is eDiscovery which is the electronic aspect of collecting or producing information in response to a request from an investigation or law suit. This is a complex process becuase there are so many aspects that go into eDiscovery and it is required by law to get all pieces together.
