Hardly a week passes without a report of consumer or company data being compromised. According to the Privacy Rights Clearinghouse, a non-profit consumer organization, more than 90 million data records containing sensitive personal information have been involved in security breaches since February 2005. We have all read about high profile cases such as the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and AOL from the headlines of our morning newspapers. Sipping our coffee, we assure ourselves that a data breach could never happen to us.

"The most secure approach would be to lock down all sensitive data in a central server and not allow any information to migrate to a user's desktop. While this would almost certainly guarantee the safety of sensitive information, it makes for an almost unusable system."
This is most definitely not true. Many companies feel it is impossible to find a solution that will assist in security compliance while also fitting into their budget. But there are email anti-theft solutions out there that allows you to only encrypt certain data on your computer and also allows for easy decryption by YOU but not by anybody else; it covers all the bases. These programs will usually disallow alteration of messages and attachments, protect documents stored in a comp, and protect it while it's in motion.
The trend for businesses is finally moving away from laziness and towards actual security. Don't be left in the dust.
