Data Encryption


Encryption helps keeps data private by converting it to an unreadable format. Only people who have the encryption key are able to decrypt the data.

Encrypting files


Encrypting emails


  • There is no single ideal method for encrypting emails, so we recommend that you encrypt individual files (see section above).
  • It is also possible to use public key encryption with the Mozilla Thunderbird client, which only works with recipients who also have it set up.
  • For further information, see ISG advice.

Encrypted USB sticks


  • The Information Security Group recommends DataShur hardware-encrypted USB sticks.
  • They are easy to use, and work with all operating systems.
