Yes, it is possible to use OpenPGP with GnuPG on OS X:

GPG Suite: https://gpgtools.org/

Keep in mind that the parties you want to communicate with also have to
understand how to handle OpenPGP.

suggest making sure your computer is using full disk encryption. In the case
of OS X on a Mac, this means enabling FileVault.
