Webinar: When and How to Implement Encryption in the Enterprise

Encryption is widely used by companies to secure the critical data they collect and store. It comes in different varieties and purposes – there’s symmetric vs asymmetric encryption, there’s encryption at rest, in transit and in use, there’s TDE vs record-level encryption vs column/field level encryption, and then there’s key-encryption (wrapping). All of these varieties serve different purposes and use-cases that we review during the webinar – from the point of view of an information security person, a system administrator, a developer and an architect.

Challenges in Using Encryption

What is Encryption

Encryption is the method which converts information into a secret code that hides its true meaning. It is among the most important aspects of data security but yet one of the most challenging ones. 

“The aim of encryption is to prevent malicious actors from accessing company data. Multiple standards and regulations prescribe, recommend and require to have some sort of encryption,” explains Bozhidar Bozhanov. 

We rely on encryption every day. It protects us while browsing the web, shopping online, using mobile banking and health services, or using secure messaging apps (such as Viber and Telegram).


Encyption use-cases

Companies use encryption to protect sensitive information, such as:

  • financial data, 
  • protected health information (PHI), 
  • private individual data, 
  • merchant data, 
  • military and government data, 
  • confidential/ sensitive business data, 
  • and any other data critical to the business continuity.

How Encryption Helps for Data Protection Compliance

Encryption is one of the must-haves when it comes to data protection regulatory compliance. And while encryption helps protect your data from being exposed, it also helps you:

  • protect it from tampering;
  • be sure whom you are communicating with;
  • and sign digital documents

Regulations and standards such as General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR),  Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), have supporting encryption requirements and best practices guides for its successful implementation. If your company puts sensitive personal data at risk by not applying the appripriate technical measures, it also risks to get fined by the regulators.

By determining what data you are required to protect, locating the data at rest and in transit and implementing the appropriate encryption technologies, you can significantly improve your overall corporate information security while complying with a large number of data privacy regulations. We understand how many challenges the companies face while implementing data encryption so we decided to take a closer look at them during this webinar and share our insightful expertise on how to solve them most efficiently.

For Whom Is This Webinar?

Information Security Officers

Data encryption and its successful implementation in the enterprise is one of the main concerns  of the Information Security Officers.  To ensure that sensitive data cannot be breached, Information Security Officers need to take appropriate technical safeguards, including encryption of data at rest and in transit. However, encrypting system is a challenging tasks and the Information Security Team often faces different obstacles in pursuing it.  

With this webinar, Information Security Officers will find out insights on enterprise software encryption, when and how to implement it, based on security best practices.
