New month, new Tech Chop folks! I kind of waited until the last minute for this one, so it didn’t turn out quite as good as I wanted. I also have to start being more conscious of what shirt I’m wearing because I had a hell of the time Chroma keying parts of it out this time. I wore a Punisher shirt that I got from Universal Studios last year, and didn’t realize there were faint traces of green on it. Anyway, if my shirt looks sparkly, that’s why.
Enough about that, in this episode I show you all how to protect your files using encryption. I talk about protecting individual files, full hard drives, email, instant messaging, and even VoIP phone calls. It’s pretty good if you are concerned about the security of your data, and don’t want “The Man” sticking his nose where it doesn’t belong.
Here it is!
The software mentioned in this episode is:
- Microsoft EFS
- Microsoft Bitlocker
- GnuPG For Windows
Did you enjoy this episode? Do you use encryption? Do you know of any other tools that one can use to protect data? What do you use? Let us know in the comments!
