Backup Security Encryption Types

Summary

What type of encryption should I use to secure my backups ?

Content

The type of encryption depends on the value of the data that you are protecting.

Pretty Good Privacy (PGP) is a good starting point that Secure Assure would recommend, although Bitlocker and Winzip have options within them to secure your data to a similar level to PGP.

The encryption technology is only as good as the way in which you process the backups and handle the encryption keys / passwords etc.
