The learning outcome of the unit addresses encryption methods, including encryption keys, authentication, and certificates. This unit also explores how these concepts are used in IT within practical, real-world scenarios.
Imagine that you are an IT security manager charged with explaining encryption to senior management. Create a PowerPoint presentation of at least seven slides that explains encryption concepts in understandable terminology. Be sure to discuss at least two different encryption methods and corresponding encryption keys. How are encryption and authentication related? Be sure to provide examples of how encryption is used in your organization.
Be sure to cite all sources used in a reference slide with proper APA formatting. You must use at least two peer-reviewed sources found in the CSU Online Library in your presentation. Title and references slides do not count in the length requirement.
