The Information Commissioner Officer (ICO) published a guide discussing the use of encryption. The guide provides a range of practical scenarios highlighting “when and where different encryption strategies can help provide a greater level of protection.”

Overview of the Guide:

  • Encryption protects information stored on mobile and static devices and in transmission.
  • It is a way of safeguarding against unauthorised or unlawful processing of data.
  • There are a number of different encryption options available.
  • Organisations should consider encryption alongside other technical and organisational measures, taking into account the benefits and risks that it can offer.

 

The encryption guidance is available at https://ico.org.uk…
