Myemail ensures secure communication?

KUALA LUMPUR: The 1Malaysia E-mail is meant for Malaysians to receive “sensitive personal information” without compromising security, Tricubes Bhd chief executive officer Khairun Zainal Mokhtar said. Asked why anyone would need a specific e-mail to communicate with the Government, he said: “Users will be receiving sensitive personal information contained in their income tax returns, Employee Provident Fund statements, notices of summons and driving licence renewals as well as quit rent payments.

“The e-mail, which includes a MyKad-based authentication service layer, ensures that government notices reach the correct recipients and reduces incidence of compromised personal information.” In a statement yesterday, Khairun said the e-mail was private and not monitored by the Government. “MyEmail will provide you with the option to enhance the security of your entire session with data encryption. “Tricubes and Microsoft are working closely to make sure the integrity and confidentiality of the users are ensured.” Khairun said the venture would generate revenue through value-added services such as advertising, online marketplace, bill and notice presentment.

The company will invest almost RM50mil over the next 10 years with an initial investment of around RM5.3mil.

Frankly speaking - I dont have a good feeling about this?

I had the feeling of being monitor and watch 24/7 just like in the movie.....
