Topic: ENCRYPTION 

Speaker: Mark Schulman,

Computer Instructor, Software Designer, and Small Business Owner. He uses software encryption to protect medical records for a family medical practice and for a company that does small clinical drug trials.

Losing a laptop, smartphone, or flash drive might mean you’re out some money, but it doesn’t have to mean that your confidential data leaks out into the world. Learn how to use encryption software to protect your personal data on PCs, laptops, external hard drives, USB flash drives, and smartphones. Topics include:

– single-file encryption

– encrypted containers

– whole-drive encryption

– smartphone encryption

The presentation demonstrates several free software apps that make encryption easy to use for anyone. His office uses this software to protect medical records.
