Companies are susceptible to losing sensitive data in many ways, including cyber-attackers and human errors, so it is important for organizations to properly protect their data and network.
In this assignment, you will create an Encryption Policy for CIO review. Use the organization you chose in the discussion Classifying an Organization’s Sensitive Data to frame the recommendations and information that will be protected.
