For the past few decades, every CISO and cybersecurity leader knows that encryption provides the fundamental defense layer to data and network traffic. The notion of network encryption (also known as ‘data encryption in transit’) is considered an integral part of the organization ‘security hygiene’. The most popular cybersecurity series of conferences worldwide, the RSA, is named after the RSA public-key encryption technology developed back in 1982. The most popular network encryption – AES – has become a must-have standard for every type of organization. Indeed, as the bulk of the organization’s network traffic is now encrypted by either AES or RSA encryptions, the common attack vector of network tapping has vanished and no longer requires mitigation planning and compensation controls by security leaders.
