Who needs encryption?
The facts are that we all need encryption software. Everywhere we turn we hear of data breaches in the millions that make our everyday identity vulnerable to hackers. Data breaches are on the rise with the number of data breaches in the U.S. hitting a record high in 2017; Identity Theft Resource Center (ITRC)*.
We need to be vigilant in securing our data and not just think that backing up data will suffice. One thing really dazzled me when I heard about the Equifax Data Breach. I never read anything that indicated the stolen was encrypted while in the database; at rest. If the database was encrypted at rest, the stolen information would have been useless without having the private key to decrypt the data. Instead 143 million American consumers sensitive personal information was exposed in the data breach at Equifax, one of the nation’s three major credit reporting agencies.
Equifax isn't the only company that had their data breached, thers Target in 2013, Yahoo in 2016, Myspace in 2016, LinkedIn in 2016, Ebay in 2014, JP Morgan Chase in 2014, Uber 2016, Home Depot in 2014, Adobe in 2013**, US Office of Personnel Management (OPM) 2012-14 and there are many more. These are the ones we hear about and of course, there are much more we know nothing about. Let's take for instance a simple email that is sent to anyone. We have no real idea as a consumer just how many routers a simple email goes through before it reaches its destination. In between those points there can be what's called a man in the middle attack which can sniff for plain text data going over the wire.
Even today some government municipalities are guilty of receiving or sending unencrypted information. For example, most government human resource departments offer you the opportunity to send your resume via an email. As we all know, emails are not secured and that entire email can be vulnerable to attack. Now, that hacker has your personal information or at least some of it to do as they wish.
Personally, I believe that government municipalities should post an OpenPGP public key so that you can encrypt the data including a file and then send it to these municipalities. They can decrypt that data using their private key on the other end.
