The Register has a poll up that I would like everyone to take. It’s only a handful of questions, but it will stop and make you think about the data on your hard drive, and whether or not you should be doing more encryption (at home and at work). Take a look.
Confidentiality and data leakage, secure backups, individual privacy, data integrity, identity and access management – all can be dealt with in some way by encryption. So why don’t we all just use it then, and be done?
