Encrypting Data is one layer of Defense
Encryption is just one of many layers of defense for securing your data. For example, MCC is currently encrypting all MCC issued laptops. MCC’s wireless network has an option for you to use “MCC-crypto” to encode the data transmitted from your device. It is important that you use the pre-encrypted USB drives when carrying secure sensitive data and on your smart phones, iPads, iPods, etc. You should enable the passcode feature and if available enable the encryption feature. To learn more about encryption and protecting your data read the following cyber security newsletter.
