Understanding encryption and key management
Organizations need to be in the habit of securing sensitive data using encryption, but that is the easy part. Key management is really the name of the game. If an organization loses its encryption key, it may never be able to decrypt its own data, and if it loses its key to an attacker, then all that data is at risk of being misused.
In this video, Richard Moulds, VP strategy with Thales e-Security, speaks with SC Magazine reporter Adam Greenberg on how encryption works and how to improve key management.
