Schneier: How to protect your laptop and portable disks
Posted by Clark Venable on 12/15/2007Bruce Schneier writes an excellent security newsletter called Crypto-Gram. This week there's something especially important for physicians who keep patient data on portable computers or drives: How to Secure Your Computer, Disks, and Portable Drives.
"The reason you encrypt your entire disk, and not just key files, is so you don't have to worry about swap files, temp files, hibernation files, erased files, browser cookies or whatever. You don't need to enforce a complex policy about which files are important enough to be encrypted. And you have an easy answer to your boss or to the press if the computer is stolen: no problem; the laptop is encrypted."
