188.8.131.52. Why should you encrypt data?
Encryption is synonym to secrecy. In the context of backups,
encryption can be very useful, for instance if you need to leave
your backed up data in a place where you can not control access,
such as the server of your provider.
Apart from that, encryption can be applied to E-mails as well:
normally, mail is not encrypted and it is often sent in the open
over the netwerk or the Internet. If your message contains
sensitive information, better encrypt it.
