Protect Your Keys or Don’t Waste Your Time Encrypting Your Data presented at DataConnectorsDenver 2020

by Brad Beutlich,

Summary : For over 2000 years, governments, armies, businesses and lovers have been encrypting messages.

After 2000 years, technology has advanced such that the keys can be protected but many companies don’t understand how important it really is. Mr. Beutlich will explain in an entertaining (and sometimes graphic) fashion why protecting the encryption key is more important than the encryption itself.
