What is Data Encryption?
Data Encryption is a method by which readable information (plaintext) is converted into an encoded format (called ciphertext) using complex algorithms. The information can only be decrypted using an encryption key, which makes encryption one of the most popular and effective methods of protecting confidential information today. Only authorized users with the encryption key will be able to access the sensitive information.
Why is Encryption Used?
Today, companies of all sizes are storing and sharing highly-sensitive information digitally, whether it be on hardware or using cloud storage. This is especially the case with industries such as legal, financial, accounting, healthcare, insurance, and government where confidential information is abundant.
While sharing and storing information online is more convenient, there is a risk that it can be intercepted and stolen by cybercriminals. The data can then be used maliciously and cause tremendous harm to a company and its reputation.
By encrypting data, even if unauthorized users steal confidential information, they would not be able to access the information without the encryption key.
