Nothing is ever ‘free’

Last week I attended SC Congress in New York and did a presentation talking about the results of our study with the Ponemon Institute and the cost of data encryption solutions.

It was a good event, well attended and there was great turnout at the session I presented at. What really resonated though was the nodding heads when walking through the information. Engaging the audience is always important when presenting, but getting agreement on key findings and data in general, is always refreshing if not comforting. It helps validate what we did, why we did it and why we think it’s important.
