Organizations seeking to protect sensitive and mission-critical data quickly realize that there is no single answer to keep all systems completely secure. Online data security is a complex, rapidly evolving landscape, requiring robust and layered protections. Encryption is one tool in a comprehensive defense-in-depth strategy to mitigate the risk of accidental and intentional data breaches. Like every other technology tool, implementation must work within a broader digital ecosystem, without disrupting the purpose that the system was designed to fulfill. Evaluating the benefits of encryption against potential tradeoffs such as cost, performance, and ongoing maintenance is at the heart of determining the most effective and efficient means of using encryption.
