In this publication we will take a brief look at the risks associated with data in transit across modern high-speed networks. We will talk about the associated impact of Cyber Crime and reflect on the need to secure data within both the public and private sectors.
We will highlight the role of encryption in securing data and explain some of the key components of data encryption along with where to encrypt. We will also outline the importance of the key global standards of accreditation for encryption technology and what to look for.
What we won't be doing is talking about the nuts and bolts of encryption. The world of algorithms, keys, certificates, certification authorities and quantum key distribution will have to wait for another time.
