Preventive Controls – Encryption

Discuss, in 500 words, how you would advise your current employer to use encryption to reduce the vulnerabilities of their data at rest, in use, and in transit (or in motion). Identify at what points you think their data is at the highest risk. Consider where the data is when it at rest, in transit, or in use and the potential vulnerabilities associated with each of those locations.

Include at least one quote from 3 articles, place them in quotation marks and cite in-line (as all work copied from another should be handled).

Do not copy without providing proper attribution. Write in essay format not in outline, bulleted, numbered or other list format.

Use the five paragraph format. Each paragraph must have at least five sentences. Include 3 quotes with quotation marks and cited in-line and in a list of references. Include an interesting meaninful title.

It is important that you use your own words, that you cite your sources, that you comply with the instructions regarding length of your paper. Do not use spinbot or other word replacement software. It usually results in nonsense and is not a good way to learn anything. I don’t have time to read nonsense and will grade it very critically. Please do not use attachments unless requested.
