Data stored in the cloud is encrypted

Encrypting data stored outside the business, especially in the cloud and/or outside European legislation, eliminates the risk of unauthorized access.

Encrypting data eliminates the risk of information leaks by careless or ill-intentioned (external) staff or from loopholes/exploits that give access. This encrypted data - even if it is made public - is not readable without the proper keys, which should always be stored separately.
