What are important things to keep very valuable data secure?

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by 32andtwentyseven, Oct 18, 2007.

  1. Perhaps somewhat off topic. But lets say you have a business and you
    want to keep information "blueprints" totally secure. Aside from
    having the vital data off-line and using encrypted pen drives, what
    other things should you be doing?

    Using a program called TrueCrypt.

    Do real businesses do backups? So go check whatever backup software
    you have employed to see if it permits encrypting the backups. And
    remember the password you use for encryption (or write it down and
    lock that up).

    If you are asking how to keep data secure that is being *used* within
    your host, use whole-disk encryption software that also ensures that
    the files read are encrypted in memory and make sure your applications
    that open those files use temp space on the encrypted drive. If the
    pagefile or temp files used by the app are not on the encrypted drive
    then pieces of your oh-so-valuable information are in the clear. Of
    course, any employee can copy elsewhere to steal that is using that
    data.

    So what is with the "say you have a business"? You don't know? Too
    many drugs to know if you are actually working or just dreaming of
    working? Either you do or you don't have a business or a job.
    Looking for help, maybe, on how to crack someone else's encrypted
    data?
