Encrypting data for storage and transfer

Encryption protects your information by making it unusable to anyone not authorised to access it.

Data encryption is the process of converting information into a code that can only be decoded with a specific “key” or password. This makes it unreadable and unusable to anyone else.

Data encryption can be a highly effective way of securing information for transmission and storage.
