Data encryption is an important element of an organization's response to security threats and regulatory mandates. What many organizations are finding is that while encryption is not that difficult to achieve, managing the associated encryption keys across their lifecycle quickly becomes a problem that creates a new set of security vulnerabilities and introduces the risk that important data will be inaccessible to those who need it and are authorized to use it. This white paper explores best practices for encryption key management and describes how the nuBridges Protect solution can be used to implement those best practices.
