    Educate Yourself on Encryption

    More and more organizations are turning to encryption as a means of securing data. Encryption providers that offer intelligent key management, i.e., the enablement of centralized encryption key management from within an organization, allow end users to control their own data. This method protects against third-party attacks on the network.

Advanced security hacking techniques known as ”ransomware attacks” are on the rise, especially in the health care industry. Ransomware occurs when a cyber criminal encrypts an unsuspecting user’s data and demands payment in return for access.

In this slideshow, WinMagic COO Mark Hickman offers five tips for protecting against ransomware.
