I've been using Truecrypt on my personal laptop for two moths. The
entire drive and boot sector are encrypted and I've noticed
insignificant performance decreases. I am going to approach my manager
regarding the benefits of this since we have many sites across our
Enterprise. We're also in the transportation industry therefore many of
our users travel frequently. Given the number of stolen laptops per
year, citing the Dell Study, I believe this is a wise decision.
My question regards how best to approach my manager since the culture
amongst our IT department tends to shirk security for continence or
under the naive assumption that we don't hold the most sensitive data!
We do not even encrypt our public FTP traffic. This drives me nuts.
Anyway any advice would be appreciated.
