Encrypted Disks #security #privacy

Encrypted Disk

I just saw this question: I have an external 3Tb Hard drive formatted as Mac OS Extended (Journaled, Encrypted) with 10.7.1. Just wondering if 10.6 can also access this external hard drive ?

And saw this answer: I strongly recommend against encrypting anything unless you really really really have to. The only one it will ultimately keep away from your data is yourself.

 

It’s stupid answers like this that allow people to lose their identity when their phone, computer or harddisk is stolen. By encrypting your data you are wisely protecting your data from theft, and ensuring that when you do suffer the loss of a device you don’t compound that loss with your identity or other valuable data. It is in exceptional circumstances that you lose your data due to the encryption, this is not likely to happen.
The first thing I do on my computer is set up an encrypted disk, you should too.

6 Months of Security Links #2011

leave a comment »

I’m a regular curator of daily links, and like to give overviews of my collection of curated links and posts. This is partly as there are some good sources and articles in here and as I am working on a research project which I started based on a number of books I read.

I’m sure you’ll find something interesting in the items below – there are some gems in the list – and I dare to hazard the guess you might learn something you wanted to know. 🙂

Making a Movie based on a Video Game

leave a comment »

On June 16th in the US and July 2nd in the Netherlands Disney will release Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time. I liked the original game Prince of PersiaIMDB released in 1989, although I never played any of the other games. I can’t remember if my friend had it on NES or SNES, but in my mind I played it on the Commodore 64. Must be my imagination as it isn’t possible according to the list on Wikipedia.

I wonder how the film turns out…

Cloud Computing

with 2 comments

For some time I’d been trying to define what cloud computing was for myself. A number of people have tried to define it at the Cloud Computing Expo, it was all written down in Twenty Experts Define Cloud Computing.

Personally I think Cloud Computing is more like an adaptive Grid, were Grid is distributed over a homogeneous platform Cloud is a more dynamic heterogeneous environment.
