Speaking of mitigation of risk:

It is important to note that regardless of the technology, people are usually the weakest link when employing some use 
of encryption. If the tools are too cumbersome to use, they will not encrypt the data properly. If personnel are not 
properly trained, then you will not realize the ROI for your encrytion products, that we so desperately try to prove 

How we interact with sensitive data should be molded and shaped through a combination of policy, enforcement, training 
and the use of the latest tools and techniques.  Risk mitigation does not stop with the decision to use full disc or 
file level encryption. And I agree, totally, that encryption is not a "silver bullet" to this problem, but only a 
component of the overall solution.
