Encryption of personal data is compulsory
Today, due to judicial terms, companies are forced to encrypt certain types of information. The German Federal Data Protection Act foresees the duty that companies, which collect, assimilate, or use personal data have to take technical and organizational measures to guarantee privacy protection. Concerning the measures outlined in Section 9 of the Act, encryption of data takes an essential role.
Protect yourself from data loss
However, not only due to legislation should encryption solutions be in a company’s best interest. The damage caused by a lost USB stick with unencrypted, confidential data might be immense.
Every employee who uses a company notebook or carries sensitive data on a USB stick to his home office or to customers may potentially endanger your company. Every loss of data can cause a huge economic impact. Financial losses caused by the loss of competitive advantages or caused by claims for identification or loss of image can occur fast.
