I am going to be talking about Encryption! Enjoy!
What is encryption?
Encryption means to scramble data in such a way that only someone with a secret code or key can read it.
Encryption is the most effective way to achieve data security. To read an encrypted file, you must have access to a secret key or unencrypted data is called plain text; encrypted data is referred to as Cipher text.
Story of encryption
A 2009 attack against RockYou.com yielded 32million passwords, allowing hackers to replace their dictionary-generated lists with words people were actually using, while revealing common strategies like replacing “e” with “3” or capitalizing the first letter. Because people are increasingly using just a few passwords for many sites each breach exposes users across a host of platforms.
How to protect yourself from encryption
To protect your security experts suggest using a different, randomly generated password on every site, tracking them with a password program.
Make a strong complicated password that you can remember.
