About the Book

Encryption ensures that files are stored in an encrypted form whether you are transmitting it over the Internet, backing it up on a server, carrying it on USB or on your laptop. Encrypting your data makes it unreadable to anyone but you or intended recipient.Reading the encrypted sectors without permission will return random-looking data instead of the actual files.Encryption is a great way to keep valuable data safe.

We will cover:   Employing full-disk encryption, which protects all your data even if your hardware falls into the wrong hands.   Encrypting your cloud storage.   Encrypting your Internet traffic.   Encrypting online communication, if you want it to remain private, it’s time to start thinking about encryption.   Encrypting your email.   Encryption for social networks and open web.
