Making sure you have proper security measures in place is often much easier (and less expensive) than recovering after the fact. We all know what a hassle it is when our computer gets infected with a virus... Or do we? As the technology continues to evolve, the threats become more frequent and more dangerous. There are new strains of malware out that will encrypt all the files on your computer and hold them ransom. These are some of the nastiest things to get and are often devastating for the affected parties.
Encryption - What is it? Why is it important?
Encryption is the most effective way to achieve data security. To read an encrypted file, you must have access to a secret key or password that enables you to decrypt it. Enabling encryption on your computers or mobile devices makes it nearly impossible for an intruder gain access to your files and data.
