On December 12, 2016, the Department of Human Services (DHS) joined with other state agencies in the transition to Google mail and calendar. This transition represents an opportunity to add new productivity tools that will support the work we do every day to improve the lives of Iowans.
As part of the transition, encrypted email will now be sent through Virtru. The Virtru tool is help DHS protect confidential information. Previously, DHS used the Tumbleweed system, and Virtru works in a similar manner.
