While still considered the most crucial aspect of data protection, encryption alone will no longer keep your data safe from hackers and thieves. If businesses don’t develop a multi-faceted arsenal of security weapons, they are easy targets for data theft.
Encryption is a powerful weapon in the CIO’s data protection arsenal. But the multi-faceted threats abound today reveal that it is not the only way to reliably protect your data.
Scientists have reported an important speed breakthrough which brings closer the day when quantum encryption becomes a usable part of communications security.
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), a U.S. government agency, has reported that it has managed to shift quantum-encrypted information at a "raw" throughput of 4 million bits per second across a 1 km-long fiber link.
This is at least twice NIST's previous record, which has been rising since the agency announced it had broken the 1 million bits per second barrier in May 2004.
With more cyber hacking occurring, and people's sensitive data being phished or broadcasted, IBM has developed encryption technology to make hackers' lives a little bit harder.
There are basically four ways to eavesdrop on a telephone call.
One, you can listen in on another phone extension. This is the method preferred by siblings everywhere. If you have the right access, it's the easiest. While it doesn't work for cell phones, cordless phones are vulnerable to a variant of this attack: A radio receiver set to the right frequency can act as another extension.
New Delhi: Kingston Technology Corporation has introduced Kingston DataTraveler Elite – Privacy Edition (DTE Privacy Edition), the world’s first USB Flash drive that secures 100 per cent of data on-the-fly via 128-bit hardware-based AES encryption, ensuring fail-safe security best practices without IT intervention.
