Another News Scare on Full Disk Encryption Hacking

Another day, another scary headline:

Security flaw in ‘nearly all’ modern PCs and Macs exposes encrypted data

Don’t get us wrong, we don’t discount this as false.  It’s almost certainly not.

But for us, we never ever rely on one lock for our IT systems.  Full disk encryption?  Sure, we got it.  But we also server-side encrypt our data AND we end to end encrypt our most important data.  Three levels of encryption.  Each with a completely different software package.  All Open Source.

We also 2FA protect out logins for all key accounts (email, ssh access, cloud and even our web site portal).

We note this headline, but then go about our day.

Don’t let the headlines scare you too much!
