Five Ways Encryption Has (or Hasn't) Changed Since Snowden-7

The month of June officially marked the one-year anniversary of the infamous Edward Snowden/NSA leaks. From The Guardian's publishing of classified documents, to Snowden's identity unveiling and the revealing of the NSA spying rules, the world was stunned to learn that there really is a "Big Brother" always watching.

Enterprises and consumers alike have been left wondering how to prevent the U.S. government tracking their every move. While this so-called "whistle blower" continues making headlines, Snowden has made public claims stating, "the first effective step that everyone can take to end mass surveillance … don't ask for your privacy. Take it back."

Data encryption provider WinMagic has released findings that take a closer look at the evolution of encryption, analyzing adoption rates of the technology and the evolution of privacy awareness.
