Confidential information on backup tapes? ENCRYPT.

One of the heavy hitting areas now for identity thieves, seems to be the backup arena. Why? Usually corporations leave the backup duties to a lower ranked employee. This not only creates a procedural problem, but it also allows a huge security risk to go unmaintained. Easiest solution? Encrypt the backup tapes. In case confidential information does get lost, there will be hell for the identify thieves and it will definitely be more worthwhile to them to find some other lacky then to crack your encryption.
