It seems as though everywhere you turn lately, another story breaks revealing information about PRISM and Edward Snowden. And it just keeps coming. Snowden’s latest disclosure builds on the story that not only has the NSA partnered with cloud service providers to bypass encryption and access data on their international clients, but also that they have ‘cracked much online encryption.’ What does this mean for your security team? Should you quit using encryption?
The short (and long) answer is NO.
