Federal Guide to the Value of Encryption: Encryption From Check Point Can Reduce Recurring Financial Risks of Security Exposure by 90 Percent
Encryption is a cyber security technology used to protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information stored on or transmitted between computers. Encryption solutions from Check Point automatically obscure digital files and make them unreadable by unauthorized users. The software allows authorized users to automatically decrypt files for use with appropriate applications. The use of these solutions is transparent to users and provides a vital infrastructure service similar to electricity or gas. This paper from Check Point Software is about the economics of encryption. It assesses financial risks to information loss if a federal government agency or department does not use encryption and how those losses can be reduced by using encryption.
