In recent years, encryption has become an essential tool for cybersecurity and data protection. It’s also one of the most important aspects of any business today - especially when it comes to cloud databases. Encryption will protect your data from being stolen or intercepted by third parties and maintain your privacy by ensuring your information is only accessible by the intended recipient and not by anyone else.

There are many different types of encryption methods, but they all use similar principles, which Jon will cover in-depth in this episode.

Join the conversation with Jon McLachlan as he shares about encryption in cyber security and data protection to provide you with tools to protect your data in order to avoid potential threats like cybercrime or data breaches. Jon is the co-founder and CEO of Peacemakr and the host of The Security podcast of Silicon Valley, and he has been in technology, cyber, and startups for a very long time.
