I'd have personalyl said it should be either 'in strict confidence' or 'in the strictest confidence' but happy to be corrected!

Surely it depends how strict the confidence is IYSWIM!

This really depends on what is laid down by the company. There should be a security policy stating what term is to be used, under what circumstances and what extra precautions need to be taken when it is used (e.g. allowed to be sent by e-mail or not, allowed to be sent by ordinary mail or not, how many envelopes needed etc..).

In the civil service the term used is "In strictest confidence"
