You may think that because you have a password on your laptop, your data is safe.
This is wrong!Anyone can use a USB stick (with free, openly available software on it) to get all your files, data and even email, without having to know your password.
If you leave your laptop on the bus or it's stolen from your car, any data on it can be accessed. Not only could this be damaging to your business, but it also has serious GDPR consequences.
The only way to make a laptop or PC secure is encryption. Encryption scrambles your data to make it unreadable. Unless you have the key to unscramble it, the data is unusable
Modern operating systems have encryption features built in. Not only can this be used to protect your laptop or PC it can also encrypt USB sticks and servers. Not only is this good security practice but it also gives you the peace of mind that if something unfortunate should happen, any data will be unreadable.
