Question 13 2 / 2 pts Which of the following is a true statement about protecting the confidentiality of client-related e-mail? (CO1) Viruses may be transmitted by e-mail messages, so each e-mail should be separately scanned prior to being read. Public key infrastructure (PKI) uses unique codes to confirm the identity of those sending e-mails. Digital credentials utilize biometric means, such as thumbprint, to verify the identity of the sender. Encryption keys prevent viruses or Trojan horses from being attached to e-mail messages. Question 14 2 / 2 pts Which is the most effective way to reduce SPAM (unsolicited e-messages) in the workplace?
