Encrypt sensitive data

Encryption is a cornerstone of data security — without it, you significantly increase your susceptibility to data breaches. Two common and widely adopted data encryption methods are public key (asymmetric encryption) and private key (symmetric encryption).

By encrypting sensitive information, you add an extra layer of protection and, in turn, make it difficult for malicious actors to access or interpret sensitive records. The benefits of data encryption also extend beyond fortifying sensitive data per se to help facilitate remote working security and regulatory compliance.
