We've all seen the seemingly weekly news about yet another data breach: millions of credit card numbers, SSNs, or other personal information exposed. Encryption is the technology that minimizes the cost of such data breaches, by making the "leaked" data useless to the thief.Â So more and more sites are investigating encryption, some even before a breach occurs. But where do you start with this technology?Â How do you make a sensible choice among dozens of vendors, between hardware and software?Â Where and when do you encrypt data, and is that sufficient?Â What about emerging standards and legislation, such as PCI DSS, Red Flag, GLBA, SB1386, Directive 95/46/EC, et al.? Come hear about implementing encryption from a business perspective -- what you need to worry about and how to approach it.Â This is not a comparison of encryption technologies per se, but rather a look at the issues surrounding them. While the presenter works for an encryption vendor, this is a general presentation, with minor content at the end that discusses the Voltage SecureData product as an example.
