Encrypt a Laptop

A laptop computer may contain a lot of sensitive data. You need to encrypt the data with an encryption software should the computer be lost or stolen. The recent debate between Apple and the FBI about unlocking an iPhone has led to a false sense of security when it comes to laptop computers. Laptops do not have a built-in encryption system that is activated by simply using the passcode. By only having the passcode activated on a laptop, a skilled person can often crack it in less than five minutes and read everything stored on the hard drive. The only way to make sure your data is secure is to encrypt the hard drive on your computer.
