Encrypting with GPG on Windows, Mac and Linux

Information security, or the lack of it, has been in the news a lot lately. The cost of not protecting information is huge. 

Encryption is the most effective way to achieve data security, however, many find the use of cryptographic tools obtuse and difficult, even though it really isn’t.

This page is meant to introduce in simple terms how encryption tools work on different operating systems and how to use them in the hope that our community can better understand and use these tools as a means to achieve data security.

If you need help with understanding what and why encrypt check our Security page for more information about data classification.
