Encryption key management - how to keep your company safe
If Edward Snowden has taught us anything, it is surely that Big Brother really is watching after all; it's not just a conspiracy theory any more. With the cloud at the heart of the average enterprise data storage strategy these days, and regulatory compliance issues coupled with basic data protection laws regardless of where you are based to consider, taking responsibility for ensuring your data remains private has become even more of a priority. Don't get too hooked up on the NSA spy scandal though, there's also 'accidental' data leakage and intentional hacking to throw into the security mix as well. Doing nothing is no longer an option, unless you relish being fined for compliance/Data Protection Act violations or seeing your reputation tank.
