Find out how to deploy an encryption policy that will work for your business

We've all heard and read the sorry tales in the news of lost laptops, missing disks and reputations ruined. If only the data had been encrypted, then everything would have been alright – or so we are told. Is encryption really the answer to all our data loss problems?

Encryption is a powerful tool in the fight against cybercrime and data loss, but it needs careful thought and the various options on offer need careful consideration before deployment.

A badly implemented encryption policy can backfire and render your organisation vulnerable to loss of business and operational inefficiency. Just when information is required at point of need, you find it is encrypted and unrecoverable because the keys have been lost. Not good.

This webcast will guide you through the fundamentals of encryption and demonstrate why a proper key management policy is crucial to a secure and workable encryption scheme that can be used and understood by all employees and key data handlers.
