A recent breach involving a county health center in Oregon highlights the critical importance of robust data security measures. In April, a stolen laptop led to the potential exposure of sensitive information for over 1,000 clients. Despite disabling the former employee’s network account and access to critical systems, the lack of effective encryption on the laptop allowed unauthorized access to protected health information.

Preventing a Data Breach from Stolen Laptops

If the county health center had utilized Opal Lock, the outcome could have been drastically different. With Opal Lock’s full-disk encryption, even if the laptop had been stolen, the data would have remained encrypted and inaccessible to unauthorized users. Opal Lock’s secure setup, password management, and flexible locking mechanisms would have provided an additional layer of protection, preventing the breach and safeguarding sensitive client information.

Full-Disk Encryption for Complete Data Protection

Opal Lock is designed to offer top-notch security for Trusted Computing Group (TCG) drives. By deploying full-disk encryption, Opal Lock ensures that all data on the drive is encrypted and inaccessible without proper authorization. This means that even if a laptop is stolen, the data remains protected and unreadable to unauthorized users.
