If any reader feels like enlightening me on vendors of encryption software that law departments might use, I would be grateful. I mention this because I have been consulting to a company whose legal group encrypts its computers with PointSec. They also use PGP (Pretty Good Privacy) to encrypt confidential documents; company proprietary material, and personal data that needs privacy protection.
Law departments in the United States undoubtedly use software from an entire thicket of encryption companies, but I have little to add about this cottage industry (See my post of Jan. 25, 2007: encryption of data transferred to matter management system; Oct. 1, 2006: BoardVantage’s built-in protections; April 22, 2007: e-billing data; and Aug. 15, 2008: encrypted email.).
