Businesses are typically concerned with hiring employees, securing additional office space, growing revenue, generating sales, and other metrics that directly translate into a better bottom line. This focus sometimes overlooks proactively addressing other aspects of corporate strategy that have less obvious but crucial ROI, like effective cybersecurity. And often the most effective (and cost-effective) way to secure data is through encryption.
Encryption is the process of modifying data to make it unreadable to everyone except authorized users. It can help organizations protect critical data from a range of potential threats, many of which can directly and sometimes catastrophically impact revenue. Businesses typically use encryption to protect customer data, personal information, trade secrets, tax information, employee files, credit card information and ultimately, their brand and the trust of their customers.
