Encryption Standard

Number:
SEC-08-02-S was 141.10 (4.3,4.4)

Purpose

The Encryption Standard requires encryption to protect state data from exploitation by making data unreadable and unusable to unauthorized viewers. Encryption confirms authenticity of the data source. Encryption of data stored or in transit maintains information confidentiality and integrity, including confidential information requiring special handling. Alignment with these strategies supports compliance with statutory and regulatory requirements specific to the type of information stored or transmitted.
