Encryption is everywhere and taken for granted.
Encryption is routinely broken, yet few organizations have a corporate policy in place to govern confidential and secure communications. Most organizations blindly follow decades-old cryptographic methods, or at best, define a certificate management policy that fails to set minimum standards for cryptographic resiliency.
The future of encryption will require organizations to execute a corporate cryptographic policy that:
- Introduces redundancies in the cryptographic stack.
- Removes single points of failure common to modern-day encryption practices, i.e., software bugs, weak entropy sources, poor programming skills, implementation errors, lack of key rotation, etc.
- Embraces crypto-diversification and utilizes a crypto policy management platform to ensure the enterprise evolves in lockstep with the threat landscape and shifting business requirements.
