Email Encryption: New Osterman Research Whitepaper Says Encryption Investments "Pay for Themselves"
Our friends at Osterman Research recently published a new white paper - How Encrypting Content in Transit and at Rest Reduces Liabilities and Costs for any Organization- about email encryption and similar topics. You can get a free copy, compliments of Proofpoint, by following the link or by filling out the form at the bottom of this post.
In this new report, Osterman Research notes that investments in encryption "pay for themselves" through a number of different avenues. As regular readers of this blog are aware, encryption technologies can play a crucial role in regulatory compliance and regulatory fine avoidance. But email encryption and other types of encryption can also enable secure business and deliver other forms of business value, as described in this new paper.
If you're looking for help in creating a business case for deploying an encryption solution (such as the Proofpoint Encryption email encryption solution), this 15-page report can be extremely helpful. It includes a good summary of the various US state laws that govern security breach notification (or that may require or imply encryption) as well as the many US and international regulatory obligations (such as GLBA, PCI-DSS, FINRA, HIPAA, the UK DPA, Canada's PIPEDA) that imply similar requirements.
