- SECURE YOUR DATA IF YOU ARE A ROAD WARRIOR


Some times ago I received a desperate phone call from a friend a continent away. His portable computer had been robbed. That was bad. He was traveling for an important financial negotiation and the computer was packed with sensitive data.

That should not happen if one takes some simple precautions. There are many possibilities to avoid such occurrence. You need to protect your data or have them backup on a remote system from which you could download them back to your computer. Even if the latter precaution had been taken, it is an absolute necessity to password-protect your computer if you are a road warrior. However, one protection may not be enough to save your life. Hackers abound now worldwide and your sensitive data may be on the open very fast. So what to do?

- ENCRYPT YOUR HARD DISK

Technology exists that encrypts the Hard Disk and makes data secured beyond prying eyes. Some are expensive and fortunately there are freeware around.

One of them is Cryptainer LE, a powerful encryption software, Cryptainer LE is a powerful 128 bit encryption client that creates multiple 25 Mb encrypted containers (vaults) on your hard disk. These encrypted vaults can be loaded and unloaded when needed. You can view, modify and hide all types of files with a single password.

User friendly Cryptainer LE works the magic with all 32 bit versions of Microsoft Windows - 95/98/ME/2000/XP/2003 Server - and with all known file types. It allows you to password-protect and secure any file or folder on any media, including removable drives (Flash Drives, CD ROM's etc.)

Simply drag and drop the files and folders you want to hide and that is. Your files are hidden!

If you need strongest encryption, you may buy Secure IT (from the makers of Cryptainer LE) that uses 448 bit encryption and very high compression.

Both utilities - Cryptainer LE and Secure IT feature a Secure e-mail module that allows for the creation of self extracting encrypted files. The recipient need not have neither of utilities installed to decrypt the files, all that is required is the password and DeCypher IT a freeware utility. This utility allows you to decrypt encrypted files generated by Cryptainer and Secure IT. Click here to download DeCypherIT for free.

With Cryptainer LE or Secure IT you are really secured against the bullying tactics of some countries policemen or airport security guards. The encryption used by these security software is statistically impregnable against brute force attacks. It would take more than the age of the universe for all the computers in the world working simultaneously to decipher a Secure IT encrypted file.

However, please keep in mind that it is always good to have a remote backup of your sensitive data handy and available for download in case of emergency. Just in case you lost your computer or it had been submitted to "brut force attack".

Visit this site where are listed links to international trade sites; tips and guides to importing and exporting; frequently asked questions about importing and exporting; and a list of incoterms - terms used in international trade.
