The risk of data theft requires the use of AES level encryption for valuable data when it’s at rest and in transit. Various types of encryptions are available today in both hardware and software forms, and it is important for businesses to know how these work and what options they have for implementing them.

SMB’s with heterogeneous technology environments such as Windows end points, cloud based apps/storage and Apple/Google mobile devices face the task of ensuring that their data is encrypted in and between each of these environments. An additional layer of complexity comes in when businesses have network enabled measuring devices that transmit sensitive information via W8-Fi (such as in clinics and with security cameras). Since these do not always allow for configuration, it’s important for businesses to be aware of the type of encryption these devices are implementing.

And things are even more complicated with the advent of Quantum Computing which threatens to make the current form of encryption ineffective or obsolete.

In this webinar you’ll learn:

  • What data encryption is
  • How modern data encryption works
  • Some types of encryption are better than others
  • When encryption is bad for you (i.e., ransomware)
  • Should you lose sleep over Quantum Computing?
  • How to use encryption to protect your information and business
