December 22 – Deploy encryption whenever it is available

It’s time for another tip for a secure Christmas. Security tip #22 in this Christmas calendar is to deploy encryption whenever it is available. You should make sure that you encrypt whatever that can be encrypted, especially if you are traveling for Christmas and are in public spaces. The reason for this is of course that someone managing to get a hold of your servers, laptops, mobile phones or tablets when you don’t have encryption and would have the keys to kingdom. Everything on the devices would be available for them, which most likely include files that they should not have access to. Certain systems cannot run encryption for various reasons, but workstations, mobile phones and tablets are three things that should always have encryption.
