An interesting article I read about companies still not encrypting data. It’s a simple thing to do. I don’t know why companies continue to be lazy. In this article, a company responsible for holding the e-mail addresses for customers of hundreds of company’s was hacked. The article explained that if the email address data was encrypted, the info would be useless to hackers. I found it also interesting that if the data was encrypted, the company that got hacked is not obligated to report the loss of information to the general public. It’s like the incident never happened. So it would behoove companies that deal with data storage to get on the ball and encrypt ALL it’s data….not just credit card info, to avoid an embarrassing press release.
