Mobile communication is becoming more and more important as work becomes more dynamic and more decentralized – while time plays an ever more important role. Telephone calls are the most natural, most direct form of communication for complex issues that need to be cleared up directly. Often, the parties in an oral agreement can experience changing emotions. And last but not least, language can communicate much more than simple content.
That’s why it’s important for spoken content to remain encrypted in a business environment – especially in international or global companies dealing with sensitive content like corporate takeovers, financial data, project content, or customer and supplier relationships. A dynamic corporate culture is associated with faster processes, which in turn demand direct, fast communication.
Holding a discussion over a standard telephone network can be associated with lots of risk, especially in critical regions. Companies need to take measures to make discussions bug-proof.

AREAS OF APPLICATION
INTERNATIONAL PROJECT MANAGEMENT
Companies working on international projects with employees around the world need to be able to rely on secure communication channels to transmit project data. This might include, for instance, design plans for a new production system, supplier data and delivery conditions, or pricing negotiations during a takeover of a market competitor – Anything that gives your company a competitive advantage needs to be communicated in encrypted form.
ATTORNEYS, TAX CONSULTANTS, AND NOTARIES
Persons obligated to professional secrecy such as attorneys, tax consultants, and notaries are obligated according to Sec. 203 to securely encrypt data that allows information to be associated with clients. This means, for example, that a tax consultant auditing a company may never transmit any information on this company through unencrypted channels, no matter what communication method he chooses. In order to fulfill their confidentiality obligations, attorneys may only transmit personal information via encrypted media.
Even public employees, such as ministers, departments, or divisions and their administrators must protect transmitted content from unauthorized access. After all, the data they transmit, such as draft resolutions attached to short messages or personal information, is sensitive.
