Provide specific examples—and in all instances, cite and reference the product and service provider websites. Provide 2 to 3 pages of content and use no fewer than 4 quality Internet sources and 2 scholarly sources from the NCU Library. All sources should have publication dates within the last five years.
Part 2: Encryption (7 points)
Create a 3- to 5-page review for the chief information officer (CIO). Briefly review recent encryption problems based on the encryption techniques or the tools that use encryption for part of their function. Consider not only sensitive information, but storage, backup, cloud, passwords, and related issues. Extrapolate what you might anticipate happening in terms of safe encryption for national and international use relating to data storage, transfers, identity and access management, inter-organizational integration, etc. Finish with actionable suggestions that are motivated by needs and covered in your review. Use at least 4 scholarly resources and 3 quality Internet sources.
