PRLog - Sep. 30, 2010 - GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. -- David Stycos of Zocalo Data Systems will look at how cryptography is applied to some of the problems of data security. He will discuss how good cryptography can be implemented poorly, dispelling the myth that just because something is encrypted it's secure. He will also explore how crypto systems work to protect us, and how our actions often hinder them.
